Congratulations to IFMK Law Senior Associate, Joe Bracey, and Shareholder, Bhairav Radia, for obtaining a summary judgment for IFMK Law clients, two county jail administrators. A conditions of confinement claim was brought by a detainee who sued the jail administrators, alleging that he had been unconstitutionally housed in unclean cells and improperly placed under observation for declaring a hunger strike upon his arrival to the jail in January 2021. The U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois granted summary judgment in favor of the jail administrators in August 2023 after finding they lacked any personal involvement and plaintiff’s cells had been cleaned prior to his placement.
