Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Action for Infection Contracted in County Jail
In Duvall v. Dallas Cty., No. 09-10660, an action for personal injuries stemming from an infection that plaintiff contracted while incarcerated in a county jail, the court affirmed judgment for plaintiff where the record contained a surfeit of evidence that the county knew of the conditions complained of, yet continued to house inmates in those conditions.
As the court wrote: "Plaintiff-Appellee Mark Duvall brought this action against Defendant- Appellant Dallas County ("the County") for personal injuries stemming from an infection that he contracted while incarcerated in the County's jail ("the Jail"). At the conclusion of a jury trial, Duvall prevailed, and the County appealed. We affirm."
