A woman who was booked in the San Luis Obispo County Jail has filed a personal injury complaint against the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department.
Lisa Forman is listed as the plaintiff in the complaint, which was filed Friday in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court.
The complaint says custody officers who were employed by the Sheriff’s Department slammed a cell door on Forman’s hand while she was in custody in January of 2018, causing a section of her finger to be amputated.
It goes on to say Forman suffered general damage and had hospital and medical expenses after the alleged incident.
The complaint cites general negligence and asks for compensatory damages and punitive damages. It doesn’t specify a monetary amount.
