ABC News reports that a nearly $21 million settlement has been reached covering 20 lawsuits alleging abuse by current and former inmates of the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women, New Jersey’s only women’s prison. Partner Matthew Boxer, Chair of the firm’s Corporate Investigations & Integrity practice and former New Jersey State Comptroller, was appointed in January 2021 by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to lead an independent investigation of the charges and to “make recommendations to prevent anything like it from ever happening again.” NBC New York and the The Associated Press also covered this story.
