Defendant

The son of John Neville is opposing a motion to delay a civil lawsuit filed by defendants in a wrongful-death lawsuit over John Neville's death in December 2019. Five former detention officers and a nurse charged with involuntary manslaughter and Forsyth County Jail's former medical provider have all filed a motion to delay proceedings in the lawsuit, saying that their constitutional rights against self-incrimination would be violated if the lawsuit is allowed to move forward while the criminal charges are still pending. There is no trial date for the criminal charges.

Brian Crick, a judge for two western Kentucky counties, was known for his sound judgment when it came to solving problems, a fellow judge said.

Wellpath LLC, Forsyth County Jail's former medical provider, is disputing John Neville's cause of death, as spelled out in an autopsy report. John Neville died Dec. 4, 2019, after detention officers pinned him in a prone position in a jail cell after he was found on Dec. 2, 2019 suffering from seizure-like symptoms. His family has filed a federal wrongful-death lawsuit and Wellpath LLC's attorneys filed an answer to it on Monday. Five former detention officers and one of Wellpath's nurses are facing involuntary manslaughter charges in connection to Neville's death.
