Cook County to pay $1 million to settle jail lawsuit over lockdowns at the jail


The Cook County Board on Tuesday agreed to pay more than $1 million in taxpayer money to settle a federal lawsuit brought by female County Jail inmates who said their civil rights were violated during repeated weekend lockdowns at the massive detention facility. The bulk of the settlement — $850,000 — will go to attorneys who represented the four inmates in the nine-year court case. Two inmates won federal judgments totaling $143,000, and the county opted to pay two others $5,000 to end the suit.

Look at the amounts in the disbursement, just lawyer bullshit. They couldn't even come up with people for a class action suit, now the lawyers get all the money, what does it prove??? Why the fuck has our country become so weak that people whom are tried, convicted, and sentenced get to sue the government for being locked up???

FUCKING STUPID.
