Lawsuit claims inhumane conditions at women's prison
A class action lawsuit has been filed against the Michigan Department of Corrections, alleging medical negligence and unhygienic conditions at Michigan's only women's prison.
The lawsuit claims that prison officials failed to diagnose and treat a scabies outbreak for two years. It also says that the facility is not cleaned properly, resulting in a black mold infestation in the shower area.
Jonathan Marko is the attorney for the plaintiffs.
A spokesman for the Department of Corrections says he can't comment on pending litigation. Corizon Health did not respond to a request for comment.
