Defense Verdict on Behalf of Four Prison Guards and Private Prison Management Company

Obtained a defense verdict on behalf of four prison guards and a private prison management company in a federal bench trial involving an inmate plaintiff who claimed he was gang-raped in his cell by the four guards. The court found that the inmate, who suffers from schizophrenia and was not taking his medicine during the time period in question, had failed to meet his burden of proof and returned a verdict for the defendants as to all claims against them.
