City pays biggest Rikers Island inmate lawsuit yet

The city of New York agreed on Sept. 27, 2016 to pay $5.75 million to settle a lawsuit resulting from the 2013 death of mentally ill Rikers Island inmate Bradley Ballard. At the time of his eventual rescue, Ballard was found covered in his own urine and feces after being locked in a cell with no water for six days. The settlement is the largest the city has ever paid to resolve a case of the death of an inmate in custody.
