Delaware sued over prison riot
WILMINGTON — Survivors of the Feb. 1 inmate uprising at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center that left Lt. Steven Floyd dead filed a lawsuit against the state and several of its officials seeking compensatory and punitive damages on Tuesday morning.
Attorneys Thomas Neuberger and Tom Crumplar, who are representing the plaintiffs, held a press conference to detail the freshly filed federal lawsuit and bring his clients before the public.
“The public deserves to see the face of law enforcement behind our prison walls,” said Mr. Neuberger. “They’re here today because I forced them to be. They are not recovering well. They are suffering constant flashbacks, nightmares, terror, insomnia, post-traumatic stress syndrome — I could go on an on.”
