LAWSUIT AGAINST ASG FOR NEGLIGENCE AND WRONGFUL DEATH
The family of Rufo Alvear Jr., who died in 2010 while in ASG custody due to his immigration status, has filed a lawsuit against the American Samoa Government for negligence and wrongful death.
The detainee, Alvear Jr, was admitted to the LBJ hospital for several months due to multiple medical problems. Alvear suffered from diabetes, and lung and kidney failure.
The lawsuit was filed with the High Court earlier this month by Mark Ude who represents the family of the detainee.
