Wrongful Death Suit Filed Against SCDC

(Columbia, SC)  --  South Carolina prison officials are being sued over a deadly prison riot.  

Eddie Gaskins' estate filed a wrongful death suit yesterday against the Department of Corrections.  

The 32-year-old was one of seven inmates who died in the riot last month at the Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville.  

A lawyer for the estate accuses the SCDC of showing blatant disregard for basic human rights.
