In a July 18 article, the Connecticut Law Tribune featured the pro bono work of Day Pitney attorneys Tom Farrish, Jeffrey Mueller and Ben Nissim that resulted in the transfer of Jerome Riddick, a Connecticut prison inmate who had been held in solitary confinement for years at a super maximum security prison, to a correctional facility where he could receive the treatment he needs for his mental illness. Mr. Riddick's case adds to a growing list of inmate civil rights cases that have been successfully resolved by Day Pitney pro bono attorneys.
