I’m not usually all for prisoner lawsuits, but this guy can go ahead and sue.
Jerry Ray Brock was in jail and got a new prosthetic leg. When he was transferred to another prison, a jail guard told him he couldn’t take the new leg with him because it was a medical device. Um, wouldn’t that mean he would need it, so should take it? Anyway, when he found out the leg wasn’t banned and asked for it, they couldn’t find the leg. he’s suing for the cost of the leg and punitive damages.
I don’t think he’ll get the punitive damages, but he should get the cost of the leg back. Those things ain’t cheap!
