Case Summary

On June 16, 2017, an individual who had previously been held at Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility (“MDCDF”) filed this class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. Represented by private counsel, the plaintiff sued CoreCivic of Tennessee (formerly the Corrections Corporation of America), a private company operating the facility under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant had violated the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel…

On June 16, 2017, an individual who had previously been held at Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility (“MDCDF”) filed this class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. Represented by private counsel, the plaintiff sued CoreCivic of Tennessee (formerly the Corrections Corporation of America), a private company operating the facility under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The plaintiff alleged that the defendant had violated the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel or unusual punishment and the Fourteenth Amendment’s due process guarantee.

The plaintiff claimed that CoreCivic had systematically failed provide adequate health care at MDCDF, a 1,300-bed prison for male and female pretrial detainees and convicted prisoners serving sentences. Specifically, the plaintiffs said a scabies outbreak occurred in 2016, but the defendant refused to implement an effective infection-control policy prior to, during, or after the outbreak.

The plaintiffs asked for punitive damages, as well as an injunctive relief enjoining the defendants from "intimidating, threatening, and retaliating against inmates for demanding medical care for their serious medical needs and to immediately provide adequate oral and topical medication sufficient to fully treat all those diagnosed with scabies." The complaint also asked for the court to require the defendant "to provide a full medical staff adequate to meet the needs of those infested with scabies and capable of dispensing medication and monitoring their treatment until completion.”

On October 27, 2017, the plaintiff filed an amended complaint that added another individual plaintiff. The case was assigned to the U.S. District Judge Aleta A. Trauger.

The plaintiffs sought to certify three different subclasses:

  1. The “Scabies Class:” All current and former inmates who had a skin rash consistent with a scabies infestation who were denied treatment, or whose delayed treatment by the Defendant caused the inmate’s condition to worsen, since October 1, 2016.
  2. The “Denied Prescriptions Class:” All current and former inmates who were prescribed medication that was not administered as prescribed, or whose prescribed plan of treatment was interrupted or delayed by the Defendant, since October 1, 2016.
  3. The “Denied Medical Attention Class:” All current and former inmates who requested, but were denied medical attention or treatment since October 1, 2016.
On September 25, 2017, the court consolidated this case with John Doe v. CoreCivic of Tennessee, also in this Clearinghouse, brought before the same trial court by other individuals who contracted scabies and were denied adequate medical attention while confined at MDCDF.

On June 27, 2018, the court denied certification of the “Denied Prescriptions” and “Denied Medical Attention” subclasses because the plaintiffs had not shown that the violation affected enough people to justify the use of a class actions. It also denied certification of any class seeking injunctive relief because the plaintiffs had all been released from MDCDF and thus lacked standing to seek prospective relief for others still at MDCDF. However, the court certified the “Scabies Subclass.”

During the year following class certification, the parties engaged in discovery and began to prepare for trial. They also entered into as-yet fruitless mediation, and CoreCivic moved for summary judgment and to decertify the class.

As of January 17, 2020, the parties are continuing to prepare for trial, and the summary judgment motion remains pending before the court.
