The case is under review in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
The County of Los Angeles has denied any actions of wrongdoing but has agreed to settle in order to avoid further court costs.
Who should file a claim?
“Anyone who were subjected to a strip search in a group outside of the bus garage while entering or returning from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Lynwood Jail between March 5, 2008 and Jan. 31, 2015.”
“No Class Member who files a claim will receive less than $200 (for one search under the least bad conditions). Persons with the highest number of searches – up to 50 – will likely receive thousands of dollars.”
