Appeal Planned In Ruling Preventing The Viewing Of Names In Corrections Lawsuit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Prosecutors for Wayne and Oakland counties plan to appeal a judge’s ruling that prevents them from viewing the names of 800 women who claimed Michigan Corrections guards and staff sexually assaulted or harassed them while they were in prison.

Washtenaw County Circuit Court Judge Timothy Connors denied a motion this past week that would change an earlier agreement keeping the names of the women confidential.

The women shared in a $100 million lawsuit settlement stemming from alleged sexual misconduct, which they claim happened inside prisons between March 1993 and July 2009. The suit was settled in 2009.
