Vail Asked NYC Mental Treatment But Delayed So Ate SONY Radio Now SDNY Case In Doubt

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 22 – Plaintiff Andrew Vail was in New York City custody when he asked for psychiatric help. According to his Federal complaint, NYC waited more than 48 hours during which, suffering from PICA, he ingested 2 AA batteries and components of a SONY radio.

He sued. 

On June 22, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger held a proceeding, which Inner City Press covered. But plaintiff Vail was not present.  

Magistrate Judge Lehrburger advised the City when it could move to end the case.

He issued an order to that effect: "If the Court does not receive a response by July 20, Defendants may file a motion to dismiss for failure to prosecute."

Vail is in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

 The case is Vail v. The City of New York et al., 18-cv-9169 (Oetken / Lehrburger).
