ADA Claims Against Correctional Officers
The increase in handling situations involving people with physical and mental disabilities has become a growing challenge for law enforcement. This presentation will address ADA claims against law enforcement in the context of correctional facilities. It will also discuss a recent case involving a mentally ill inmate who died in custody and the resulting Section 1983 claims that were brought against the nurses and the City for the inmate’s death. Tips on litigating these claims will also be provided. Some topics may be added or removed from this presentation.
