Family of inmate who died in custody plans to file wrongful death lawsuit

The family of a man who died while in county custody is planning to file a Texas wrongful death lawsuit.

The victim was Jesus Manuel Galindo, an inmate in the Reeves County Detention Center. Galindo died in December 2008 after not receiving medication for his epilepsy and subsequently being placed in an isolation cell.

Galindo’s family has sought legal representation and plans to move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against the GEO Group, the company that runs the Reeves County Detention Center. Also to be named as a defendant is the Physicians Network Association, the group that provides medical care to the inmates.

According to Miguel Torres, one of the attorneys working on the case, “This is a very significant matter and a real serious wrongful death case.”
