My name is Karen Brown, on March 16 2010 I lost my husband
while he was incarcerated.
I am aware that you know I waited eleven days before filing a
lawsuit before statue of limitations ran. As you might know
filing a lawsuit was never a priority for me. Taking care of
children and protecting them was.
We fought the lawsuit for three years getting paperwork
together and learning more about what happens to a body
when it dies than I really never wanted to know, especially
about my husband. I could have gone a life time not knowing
that he screamed for me and his face was blue like oxygen had
been cut off, or the facet he uninated on himself. These are
visions I hope you never have to experience.
When it came down to the end when we were preparing for
trial CMS ADMITTED that they lost pertinent medical records
that we needed to prove that they had failed to provide the
care they were supposed to for my husband. And they pretty
much said yep we lost it and there is nothing you can do to
prove we did it with malice. But yet they were able to maintain
over five thousands other documents just not the ones I have
been asking for, for almost five years.
And when we could not provide an expert witness to say yes
this is what happened without the medical records you
dismissed our lawsuit. We could not ask a doctor to lie if he
didn't see the records to prove what I was alledging.
You never gave us the opportunity to be heard in your court
room. You never got to meet me or my amazing children that
lost everything that day.
As I don't understand your thinking on this because I thought
the court room was for the trial and let a jury decide. I am
asking and begging you to reconsider to let me fight for him in
the proper setting.
I know it has been months since you rendered your decision but
I have had a lot of praying to do over this. I can't believe that
John died for nothing that my children suffer everyday for
Please allow me to finish what I started and let a jury make the
decision after hearing everything. This case should be heard
and Correctional Medical Services should not be allowed to lose
the documents they want and keep the ones that will help their
case. You gave them permission to lose other inmates records
are you aware anytime an inmate gets hurt or dies while on
their watch all they have to do now is lose the paperwork that
they deem necessary. Please help me get this back in a
I know it has taken me awhile to get this to you but you have
no idea what I have lost what my children have lost and for you
to just dismiss this case with out giving us our day in court has
