Loevy & Loevy Client Ray Fox Receives $12 Million Federal Jury Verdict for Injuries Suffered in Prison
After deliberating for two hours, a federal court jury today awarded $11 million in compensatory damages and $1 million in punitive damages to Raymond Fox, a former prisoner at Illinois’s Stateville Correctional Center.
In 2007 Fox was severely disabled after authorities at the prison ignored repeated pleas over three days by him and his fellow inmates to give him his prescribed epilepsy medication. Fox won the $12 million award after a one-week trial conducted by his Loevy & Loevy attorneys, Mike Kanovitz, Anand Swaminathan, Steve Art and Cindy Tsai.
