Schlitters v. CCA (Death at Kit Carson Correctional Center)

Tamara Schlitters sued Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) for the death of her son, Jeffrey Buller, who died at the Kit Carson Correctional Center in Colorado in 2001. She claimed her son, who suffered from a hereditary condition that caused his breathing passages to swell, died because staff at the CCA-managed facility refused to fill his prescription shortly before he was scheduled to be released. The lawsuit was settled out of court in 2004.
