MN County Pays $3M to Woman Who Alleged Excessive Force in Jail

A $3 million settlement has been reached in a federal lawsuit filed by a woman who alleged correctional officers at the Ramsey County jail used excessive force, her attorneys said Tuesday.

Miri Mozuch-Stafford filed the civil rights lawsuit against Ramsey County and various employees. She said correctional officers tackled her to the ground when she was handcuffed with her arms behind her back at the jail. Her tibia was fractured and an artery was severed. She said she wasn’t taken for medical treatment for 17 hours.

“During this delay Ms. Mozuch-Stafford suffered severe and limb-threatening compartment syndrome, and she experienced a markedly worse medical outcome than would have resulted had she been treated in a timely manner,” her attorneys, Steve Meshbesher and Richard Student, wrote in a Tuesday statement.
