Prisoner to Sue Over Rodent Bite

Even more of a reason to stay out of jail………

A judge in New York has allowed a man to proceed with a lawsuit claiming a rodent bit him on the penis while he was being held in prison.

District Judge Arthur Spatt denied Nassau County's motion to dismiss Peter Solomon's lawsuit, which claims officials did not take adequate steps to ensure the safety of inmates at the jail in East Meadow.

Solomon, who was jailed on a charge of menacing his wife in 2007, claims he was bitten by a rat or "similar rodent".

His 2008 lawsuit claimed the county was indifferent to rodent complaints from prisoners.

The county contended there was no evidence of rodents, but the judge said Solomon raised enough issues about pest control for the suit to proceed.
