Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

If the inmate died as a direct result of the lack of medical treatment, then the family could sue the prison for the wrongful death of the inmate. I assume that's why you are seeing a lawyer tomorrow. That would be the next step. Inmates have a Constitutional right to adequate medical care. If she was denied that and this killed her, the County could be liable for that.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
