Someone was beaten by some guys in jail. He is hurt, what recourse does he have?
If he was assaulted without provocation, he can sue the individuals who beat him. If the jail was somehow negligent in allowing the assault to occur, he may have a claim against the Sheriff or other entity responsible for security at the jail. These are tough cases and he would need to consult a lawyer specializing in that type of case.
