HSR Settles Civil Rights Case on Behalf of Formerly Incarcerated Plaintiff Against California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for $950,000

After seven days of trial, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Defendants offered to settle the case brought by HSR on behalf of Plaintiff Jermaine Padilla, a formerly incarcerated man whom CDCR officials and doctors unlawfully denied mental health treatment and subjected to horrific use of force involving 82 ounces of Oleoresin Capsicum pepper spray and three days of full-body restraints. HSR's trial team of partners Dan Stormer and Lori Rifkin and associate Caitlan McLoon were still in the process of putting on plaintiff's case when Defendants agreed to settle Mr. Padilla's legal claims for $950,000.
