Indiana nurses file whistleblowing suit against jail company

Indianapolis Star, January 29, 2008
Nurses at Marion County's privately run jail were forced to escort dangerous inmates, faced retaliation when they reported co-workers' errors and were sidelined because they are black, according to a recently filed lawsuit. The suit alleges mismanagement and mishandling of inmates' medications at Marion County Jail II. Five of the six plaintiffs have quit their jobs, and the suit says supervisors all but forced them out through "a deliberate and successful campaign to rid Jail II of African-American nurses."
