Mr. Halperin brought the case against the City of Richmond and the Richmond Sheriff’s Office. Also sued was the jail’s medical contractor. The final settlement was $2.99 million dollars.
Jonathan’s client wan an inmate who suffered from a heat stroke after he was put in a jail cell without proper ventilation or air circulation. Ultimately, the heatstroke became too much. Unfortunately, this is only one out of countless other incidences involving deliberate indifference in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
After the verdict, Jonathan explained: “We carefully investigate every case, and if there’s been a constitutional violation, we make the wrongful party pay.”
