Abstract This website provides information about the Jenkins v. City of Jennings settlement agreement.

You may be a class member in a proposed settlement class of persons incarcerated in the City of Jennings Jail because they could not afford to pay debts allegedly owed from traffic and other minor offenses and who were allegedly subjected to inhumane conditions of confinement. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (the “Court”) has ordered the issuance of notice in the lawsuit entitled Jenkins, et al. v. The City of Jennings, 4:15-CV-00252-CEJ. The Defendant denies any wrongdoing or liability of any kind in this lawsuit. The Court has not ruled on the merits of Plaintiffs’ claims.

You may be eligible to obtain a payment based upon the number of days you spent in the City of Jennings jail under the conditions described above during the Class Period of February 8, 2010 to September 16, 2015 if you qualify and submit a valid Claim Form.

The Court in charge of this litigation still has to decide whether to approve the settlement of this case. Distribution of settlement benefits will be made if the Court approves the settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
