A man who claims a rodent bit him on the penis while he was being held in a New York jail can proceed with a federal civil rights lawsuit claiming county officials should have had better pest control, a judge has ruled.
Peter Solomon claims in his lawsuit against Nassau County that a rodent came out of a hole in his mattress and bit him while he was jailed in February 2007 on a charge of menacing his wife. He's a Vietnam veteran who says he was already suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.
Solomon sued the following year, claiming "deliberate indifference to his health and safety in failing to adequately protect him from rodents." Solomon claims he suffered emotional distress, and his attorney said Thursday that Solomon has "complete sexual dysfunction."
U.S. District Judge Arthur Spatt recently denied Nassau County's motion for dismissal, ruling that Solomon had raised enough issues about the county's pest control procedures at the East Meadow jail for the lawsuit to proceed. The ruling was first reported Thursday in the New York Law Journal.
Solomon, who is in his 50s, was treated at the jail's medical clinic and later received a rabies shot. In his ruling, Spatt noted "there was no significant blood loss and the wound did not require stitching." He was released from jail the next month.
Arrested for menacing his wife? lol

There are past courts that have tried to hold trials against all the rats or animals in a single country, as it turns out they never end up coming true because, why else? they can't get every damn rat to show up.
I've got nothing to say to that news. I just can't defeat that man's logical answer.

I understood if there were tons of those rats or cockroaches and they were all disease-carrying, but one minor rat? That didn't have rabies?
Why are frivolous lawsuits becoming more common nowadays? Also, that guy shouldn't have gone to jail for committing a crime in the first place.

I can just imagine him, putting a sheet over his head and popping out of closets at her, going out and trampling her azaleas when he PROMISED he'd play inside that day...
This is like Dennis the Menace, right?

You're a convicted felon that tormented your wife. Nobody would give a fuck if a giant sewer rat the size of my arm chewed through the bars of your cell and then bit your dick completely off.

And I can understand where this guy is coming from. It's not like he's suing the rat. If there's a pest control problem it should be fixed. Although, as a Nassau County resident, I have never heard of such problems.

If I got bit on the penis by a rat in jail I think I would keep it to myself.
Then again it's a pretty good way to get back at the man. I would laugh if he won the lawsuit with legal aid.

I didn't even mean it in that sense. He is a free man after all.
Re-read the original post. His atorney claimed Solomon had "complete sexual dysfunction". This was printed in the NY Times.
That's very fucking embarrasing if you ask me.

Yeah that's a pretty legitimate complaint.
