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.

Claim: Fatal collision was due to other driver’s negligence

The mother of a woman killed in an auto accident agreed to a $1,325,000 settlement to resolve a wrongful death claim against a driver who was allegedly responsible for the daughter’s death. In November 2016, Jessica Bonsack, 31, was driving her car on I-26 when she was allegedly cut off by a pickup truck that had merged into her lane, causing Bonsack to swerve and collide with a cement pillar at a speed of approximately 70 mph. She died from her injuries. Dawna Sisco, on behalf of her late daughter’s estate, alleged that the pickup truck driver, Corey Rebh, was negligent in the operation of his vehicle, fled the accident scene and his actions enabled Bonsack’s wrongful death. The defense did not actively dispute liability or damages.
