Five employees of a New Jersey correctional facility have brought a lawsuit against the administrators of the jail. From NJ.com:
Kent R. Collins, Jerry C. Cora, Thomas J. Duffy, Agostino J. Fare and Beth Lindsay alleged in their lawsuit that the jail’s administration failed to warn them of “possible exposure” to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA.
The lawsuit was filed for more than just the pain caused by the infections, according to their attorney, Robert A. Greenberg.
MRSA lawsuits are few and far between, and from what I have seen have faded into nonexistance before anything was to come of them. I truly think this is because most of them are attempting to file suit against hospitals, but these folks may have an easier time of it. We will see.
