After week one of a ten-week trial, Haddad & Sherwin achieved the largest wrongful death settlement in a civil rights case in California history – $8.3 million – plus statewide reforms to protect all inmates from illegal healthcare by Corizon Health, Inc. That national, for-profit jail health care company, was increasing its profits at the expense of taxpayers, and county jail inmates’ health and safety, by providing unqualified Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN’s) to do the health care that state law required Registered Nurses (RN’s) or higher to do. This injunction will be enforced by Haddad & Sherwin, and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, for at least four years.
