Suit: Man Rendered Impotent After NY Jail Doctors Ignored 6-Day Erection

A former inmate at the Manhattan Detention Complex claims in a lawsuit that damage sustained to his penis from a six-day erection that went untreated while he was in custody has left him permanently impotent. Rodney Cotton had been taking Risperdal—an antidepressant that is known to cause painful and prolonged erections known as priapism.

Cotton, who was locked up after a parole violation in 2011, told DNAinfo that he saw two doctors who both simply gave him Tylenol and ice packs before he was taken to Bellevue Hospital and given surgery, four days after he initially made a complaint. One of the doctors is also being sued for allegedly telling another inmate to throw part of his severed finger in the trash, rather than attempting to preserve it.

$800k + apology: Man sues Ohio over 19yr wrongful imprisonment

A man from Toledo who spent 19 years in prison is suing the State of Ohio for an apology and massive compensation.

Danny Brown has filed a lawsuit for wrongful imprisonment. He was sentenced to life in 1982 for the murder of 28-year-old mother of three Bobbi Russell, whom he was dating at the time.

Woman Sues Corrections Corp. Over Strip Search To Prove She Was Menstruating!

A Tennessee woman filed suit in federal court Thursday, alleging that corrections officers at a prison owned and operated by Corrections Corporation of America required her to expose her genitalia to officers so they could “verify” that she was menstruating after they spotted a feminine sanitary napkin in her pocket.
