Status of suit against Cole County Jail unknown

What is the status of the suit involving inmates who went without clothing in the Cole County Jail on washing day?  Western District Cole County Commissioner Kris Scheperle couldn’t comment much on the case.

“The Sheriff did end up buying some more clothing to mitigate some of those issues, but I can’t really comment on whether that’s opened or closed,” he said.

Three former inmates filed a $100 million lawsuit in 2015 against the jail saying they were forced to be naked while the clothes were being washed.  Scheperle did says more jail inmate uniforms have been given to each prisoner.
