Prison dentist was deliberately indifferent, prisoner alleged

A jury found that a prison dentist was not deliberately indifferent to an inmate’s medical needs, nor did the suggested treatment plan constitute cruel and unusual punishment. Inmate Johnny Calvin Ollis, who had severe tooth decay, had claimed that, instead of removing a few teeth at a time until all were removed, which was Dr. Tiffiney Harper’s treatment plan, his severe pain warranted removal of all of his teeth at one time. He claimed the doctor’s failure to do so showed deliberate indifference and was cruel. In response, Harper claimed the facility was not equipped for such a major procedure and her plan was reasonable. Ollis had also sued prison officials Michael Hardee and Roland Worrell, but these claim were dismissed before trial.

Former employer failed to pay monies owed: plaintiff

A jury awarded $38,465.59 to two former general managers of a trampoline park who claimed they resigned from their positions because their employer failed to honor the terms of a profit-sharing agreement. Scott and LaDawn Burley alleged their employment agreement with Gravitopia Carolina LLC called for them to receive 10-percent of the Greenville location’s monthly net profits. The Burleys claimed they were owed $50,000 for a four-month span for which they had not been paid in 2014. Gravitopia contended that it only owed $900 to the Burleys and filed a counterclaim alleging the Burleys were in breach of contract because they dedicated significant time in their last months of employment to establishing a competing trampoline park.

Plaintiff: City failed to remove problematic mats

A volunteer at a bingo event was awarded $547,128.93 for injuries suffered when she tripped and fell over a bunched up floor mat. Callie Barras was volunteering at a recreation center owned and operated by the city of Myrtle Beach when the fall occurred. She asserted that the city had been informed by her and others that the mats used at the recreation center presented a tripping hazard because they would often roll up at the ends. Despite this notice, Barras alleged, the city failed to remove the mats. The city asserted that Barras knew of the alleged hazard and was therefore comparatively negligent in failing to watch where she was walking. The jury’s award was ultimately reduced to $300,000 pursuant to the Tort Claims Act.
