A federal judge has ruled that a jury should decide whether a former Corson County prisoner held in the Walworth County jail in Selby was deliberately denied medical treatment, opening up law enforcement officials from both counties to a trial.

Judge Karen Schreier made the ruling last Monday, March 2, in a civil suit filed in 2016 by Robert Blazer against Walworth County Sheriff Josh Boll, Corson County Sheriff Keith Gall, and members or former members of their staffs, including Alan Dale, Justin Tvedt, Mike Varilek, Kylee Franklin, Kimberly Longbrake, Justin Jungwirth, Marissa Mickelson, Heather Kroonje, Patty Dunwoody, Jeremy Johnson, Lance Schnaible, Travis Bentz, Ronnie Ducheneaux, Glenn Bissett, Tammy Richards and Cindy Strongheart.

Blazer is represented by the law firm of Davenport, Evans, Hurwitz & Smith in Sioux Falls and the defendants named in the suit are represented by the May, Adam, Gerdes & Thompson law firm of Pierre.
