Keyes v. GEO Group (Negligent Medical Care at Aurora Detention Center)

Ronnie Keyes alleged that the negligent medical care he received at the GEO Group-managed Aurora Detention Center in Colorado in 2016 caused him to contract a fatal infection. According to his complaint, Keyes had two pressure ulcers at the beginning of his detention. When he arrived, he requested an air mattress to prevent them from deteriorating or new sores from forming. He was never provided one, and his ulcers deteriorated and eventually became severely infected. GEO Group settled the case for an undisclosed amount shortly before it was scheduled to go to trial.
