Seth v. McDonough (2020) 

07-07-2020 10:43 AM

On April 21, 2020, the Civil Rights Corps sued the Prince George’s County jail on behalf of people with pretrial and post-conviction status, arguing that they are “denied even the minimal precautions necessary to mitigate against the risks of COVID-19,” such as soap and prompt access to medical care. On May 21, court in Seth v. McDonough granted a temporary restraining order in part, requiring the jail to identity and treat people identified as “high risk,” provide training staff and develop a protocol for identifying and isolating people who test positive.
