W&R file $18M Civil Rights Lawsuit

Gre­gory Rome filed an $18 Mil­lion civil rights law­suit in fed­eral court on Thurs­day in con­nec­tion with the death of 19-year-old Nimali Henry in St. Bernard Parish Jail last spring. The law­suit alleges that the Jail’s employ­ees neglected or refused to pro­vide nec­es­sary med­ical care to Nimali Henry, result­ing in her death. It is brought on behalf of Nimali’s infant child, who was four months old at the time of her mother’s death.
