Challenging Jail Mistreatment 2018

The Clinic is co-counseling with Brian McGiverin of Deitz, Lawrence and McGiverin to represent the adult children of Robert Mosley, who died of internal bleeding after a hip fracture suffered while in custody at Bexar County Jail. Plaintiffs bring claims of inadequate medical treatment, as well as a claim of discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act, in federal court in San Antonio. The lawsuit alleges that Mosley, who suffered from alcoholism and withdrawal symptoms, was unable to communicate his medical needs, and the jail failed to accommodate his illness and respond accordingly, resulting in his death. Students are drafting and responding to motions, and engaging in document discovery and related tasks.
