Jury verdict returned in favor of Plaintiffs in Section 1983 litigation

September 2005

A District of Columbia jury has returned a $997,160 verdict against Re-Direct (which provided half-way house services to the D.C. government) after finding that its negligence resulted in the death of Kenneth Muldrow, a minor child in Re-Direct’s care who was represented by the firm. 

Muldrow v. Re-Direct, Case No. 01cv2537 (D.D.C.). The case is similar toSmith v. D.C., Case No. 00-894 (D.D.C. 2004), aff’d, 413 F.3d 86 (D.C. Cir. 2005), in which Bredhoff & Kaiser, PLLC secured a verdict against the District of Columbia for its role in the death of Tron Lindsey, another child who died while in a halfway house run by a city contractor.
