CIVIL RIGHTS, CRIMINAL LAW & PROCEDURE

BUTERA v. COTTEY, No. 01-2242 (7th Cir. April
04, 2002)
Because plaintiff failed to show that sheriff
had actual notice of a
substantial risk of harm to him, or that prior
to the date he was
sexually assaulted, any incident of sexual
assault took place in the
cellblock to which he was assigned, and
because the sheriff
implemented precautionary measures to prevent
detainee violence,
evidence failed to establish sheriff's
deliberate indifference, and
plaintiff's due process claim rejected.
