Terrance Debose' attorney filed the lawsuit Monday in Cuyahoga County, where he was jailed. The two former corrections officers pleaded guilty to charges related to the beating. One officer was sentenced to nine months in prison and the other to 10 days in jail in February. A surveillance camera recorded the March 2019 beating. The lawsuit says Debose was having a mental health crisis at the time.
