30-year-old Meghan McIntosh sued, saying the jail and its medical provider — Nashville, Tennessee-based Correct Care Solutions — were negligent in treating her for MRSA, a staph infection resistant to antibiotics.
McIntosh was jailed from November 2011 to March 2012 on the charges, to which she eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months. While in jail, she said Correct Care failed to provide prompt and appropriate treatment and withheld medication that would have helped her.
The judge found that McIntosh didn’t produce enough evidence to prove her case.
