Motion to Appoint ACLU Attorney


An ACLU attorney may join the legal team in the jail overcrowding lawsuit against Vigo County.

Officials confirm attorney Michael Sutherlin has filed a motion to appoint Kenneth Falk as an additional class council.

The county is facing a class action lawsuit for overcrowding and poor living conditions at the jail.

A firm is working to provide the county with an action plan to address those issues.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday the Vigo County Council and other county officials will meet in executive session.

The county’s attorney says the purpose will be to discuss the status of the case and recent activity.
