Lawsuit by Former Lubbock Inmate Dismissed in Appeals Court

Ollie Johnson settled with Lubbock county for $100,000 after an alleged beating incident in May of 1998. He later claimed that he was pressured into accepting the settlement by Lubbock county officials. Johnson then filed a federal lawsuit, seeking $1.4 million from Lubbock County.

Judge Sam Cummings dismissed the suit in August of last year. Now, a Federal Appeals Court in New Orleans upheld Cummings decision.
