A New York man who says a rat bit his penis during a jail stay may sue county officials, a judge has ruled.
Peter Solomon, who said he later had to endure a course of rabies jabs, says jailers knew the ward in which they placed him was infested with rodents.
He says the jail was negligent and mistreated him because he is black.
Lawyers for Nassau County sought to have the suit dismissed. Among other arguments, its experts said they saw no evidence of serious injury.
Rodent problem disputed
In February 2007, Mr Solomon, a Vietnam veteran who says he has been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, was jailed in the Nassau County Correctional Center near New York City, pending trial on charges he had menaced his wife.
He was transferred to a medical observation unit amid worries he was mentally ill. He claims at night a rat "or similar rodent" emerged from a hole in his mattress and bit him on the penis and hand, drawing blood.
Mr Solomon, who is in his 50s, claimed the county was indifferent to his treatment and failed to protect him from the vermin, and sued for damages.
County officials said they were shielded from lawsuits because they had acted in an official capacity, they were unaware of substantial risks, and they disputed the notion that a rodent problem existed in the jail.
They also noted the wound did not require stitching and that his injuries were merely psychological.
"The parties dispute whether the rodent was a mouse or a rat, whether Solomon was bitten or scratched, and the nature and extent of his injuries," Judge Arthur Spatt wrote.
He ruled on Thursday the suit may proceed.


Maybe he should have kept it in his pants if he saw rats around

He's hitting on all the keywords to win this in the court of public opinion.

I realize that prison is a place we put people to forget about them, and were this a guy serving multiple life sentences I would say let him rot. However, this appears to be a guy we expect to be releasing from jail. Not having rats gobbling your cock for several months is hardly an unreasonable request.

Coro,

I still say he should have kept it in his pants. Would you be waving it around in a dark cell when you hear rat noises? I think not, you would be at the door yelling for them to get your *** outta the cell.

I think he was well used to these conditions and felt quite comfy having his, you know, out and about while around the rat population.

I'd sue. Doesn't matter if you think his dick should be out or not. Inside of a cell he should be protected from all assaults, human or otherwise.

Sure, there are a lot of frivolous lawsuits in the world. The bottom line though is that a government institution should not have a rodent infestation, nor shoud any rodents put their prisoners at risk. It doesn't matter if a rat bit his finger, face or his dick. It shouldn't have happened at all.

Hey man, here's some rat poison. Rats hate it. Eat enough of it and the rats won't bother you anymore.

Except that the only 'evidence' that he was bitten was his claim. There was no wound to be found.

1) I keep reading "rat bit" as "rabbit". Changes the story a lot

2) I wonder when they were checking him for rat bites he said "Made ya look you dirty crook"

I hope he wins the lawsuit. People shouldn't be placed into cells with filthy conditions in this day and age.

I disagree. I don't think people should endure difficult conditions so that other people can feel good about themselves.
