Featured Case: Oldaker v. Giles

(December 21, 2020)
NIPNLG and its partners filed litigation on behalf of fourteen women who suffered medical abuse at the Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia. More than 40 women filed sworn testimony in court revealing a relentless pattern of unnecessary and non-consensual medical surgeries, including a pattern of unwanted gynecological procedures. The new filing includes extensive testimony from gynecological and mental health experts, as well as statements from the women detailing their experiences. The lawsuit calls for an end to retaliation, compensation for the harms they have suffered, and release of women who experienced abuse at the detention center. The women are represented by the National Immigration Project (NIPNLG), six law school clinics, Project South, and Dreyer Sterling LLC.
