County pays $75,000 over

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsMoreno, 33, died four days after an emergency response team was called to disarm him when he became violent, attacking fellow inmates with metal strips torn from a light fixture in his cell, Granbo wrote. Moreno had used marijuana and methamphetamine and resisted guards who tried to control him by firing plastic pellets filled with tear gas and by stunning him with a Taser gun, according to a deputy district attorney who determined the guards were not criminally liable for the inmate’s death. Guards hog-tied Moreno, who continued to thrash on the ground, according to Granbo’s memo. Paramedics arrived to transport Moreno, who suffered a gash to his head during the struggle, to a local hospital. Moreno repositioned himself onto his stomach on a gurney, which impeded his breathing and caused him to suffer cardiac arrest. He was declared brain-dead days later. “Our experts would testify that the cardiac arrest was caused by his violent resistance, coupled with the presence of drugs in his system,” Granbo wrote. “A reasonable settlement at this time will avoid further litigation costs and a potential verdict that could exceed the proposed settlement.” The county agreed Monday to pay $75,000 to the family of a Castaic jail inmate, high on drugs, who died in custody several days after battling with jail guards. The three-member county Claims Board unanimously approved the settlement with the family of inmate Jerry Moreno, who died in January 2005 at the Pitchess Detention Center’s North Facility, county spokeswoman Judy Hammond said. Family members had filed two federal lawsuits claiming wrongful-death and totaling $12 million against Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, two sheriff’s detectives and 10 others. Investigators countered that Moreno was high on drugs and resisted efforts by sheriff’s deputies trying to calm him. Still, Assistant County Counsel Roger H. Granbo wrote in a memo that the county would pay more in legal fees fighting the lawsuits and faced losing its case in court. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
