$113 Million Jury Verdict for Corrections Officers

Gary Burger of Burger Law and assisted by Mike Flannery and Katie Van Dyck of Cuneo, Gilbert, and LaDuca. Gary Burger stated, “I am proud to have been able to represent these hard working and honorable men and women corrections officers fight the Missouri Department of Correction’s dishonorable system. We hope this verdict tells the DOC to stop making their officers work and refusing to pay for it.” Mr. Burger requested the jury hold the DOC responsible for not fully paying their employees, adding “when the DOC breached its agreement with its officers, it is responsible for all the harm it caused and don’t leave anyone behind” in the verdict. “I hope the Department of Corrections takes this opportunity to pay this verdict and change its system for the hard working officers continuing to work and not get fully paid.”
