D.C. Government

A federal lawsuit was filed against the government on behalf of inmates who alleged they were held in jail too long, subjected to unreasonable strip searches and returned to jail even after their cases had been dismissed in court. The D.C. Government has been ordered to pay a $12 million settlement. $3 million of the settlement will go to the D.C. Department of Corrections to be spent on improving the inmate release process and $5 million will compensate plaintiffs. (Jan-26-06) [WJLA NEWS]
