In a complaint filed on May 14, 2015, inmate Nolan Lucas was serving a 90-day sentence in the Tennessee jail. He claimed a deputy was passing out shaving razors when he came across Lucas sleeping under a blanket in his cell.
When Lucas declined a razor, the deputy allegedly said, “You are sweating. Are you sure nobody is under the blanket sucking on your neck?” The comments left the petitioner “humiliated, embarrassed and harassed.” He claimed the comments “violate the sexual harassment clause.” The case was dismissed.
In another lawsuit obtained from Tennessee District Court, inmate Daniel Taylor sued the jail for serving cold food for the past seven months on September 30, 2015.
“Because of that, I have had heartburn very bad,” the complaint read. “I am a diabetic and because of that I’ve been served cold food trays while the other inmates are served hot food trays.”
The inmate complained, but was allegedly told, “There was not enough room in the warming oven to put his food tray.” He also believes his meals “do not meet the nationally recommended dietary allowances for the basic nutrition.” The case was dismissed.
On January 17, 2017, George Blackwell sued the jail because he claimed to have filed a grievance twice for inadequate medical care. He said the result was “unsubstantiated.”
“The Defendants' intentional, malicious acts and practices caused him to suffer unnecessary and unwanted infliction of pain, violating personal liberty rights and mental anguish, and inadequate medical care,” the court papers claim. He alleged the medical provider disregarded an appointment with him. He claims his hand remains “permanently damaged.” The case was also dismissed.
Robert Gill Jr. claimed he appealed his sentence and was given a court date for January 8, 2018 in a lawsuit filed on October 29, 2018. He claimed he won his appeal. “Hamilton County and Silverdale said my out-date was February 12, 2018,” the complaint read. “My out-date was changed to March 4, 2018, which puts me at 5 months day for day not including any good time I had been receiving.” He is asking to be reimbursed for every day he served over his time.
The court hit back claiming he had not paid a filing fee or submitted proper documents.
