Man says jail forced him to eat fast; sues for $80M

An ex-inmate is suing the city after he claims corrections officers at Rikers Island jail forced him to eat too fast

RIKERS ISLAND, N.Y. — An ex-inmate is suing New York City for $80 million after he claims corrections officers at Rikers Island jail forced him to eat too fast, which caused him to suffer a medical emergency.

The New York Daily News reported that Michael Isolda, of Staten Island, underwent gastric-bypass surgery before his incarceration at the jail, and although he claimed that his surgeon submitted a letter on his behalf describing his nutrition requirements, he said prison guards wouldn't give him more than the allotted five minutes to consume each meal.

According to the lawsuit, Isolda said the speed dining at the prison caused him to vomit after each meal, which led to his stomach becoming separated from his intestine.
