Williams v. Billy et al, (18-CV-23529-RNS) - Posted 07/15/2019

Broderick Williams sues certain Miami-Dade County corrections officers and others under 28 U.S.C. § 1983. While an inmate at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, Williams alleges that officers handcuffed him for the purpose of transporting him through the prison. At some point during this process, Williams claims to have been handcuffed in his cell alongside his cellmate, who was not handcuffed. The cellmate allegedly assaulted Williams. Williams claims that the officers’ failure to intervene or stop the assault violated his constitutional rights and resulted in serious physical and psychological harm to him. A record of counseling issued by the County related to the incident, which is attached to the complaint, describes the incident and suggests it was recorded on video.
