Family files for temporary injunction against Orange County Jail to shut down jail
ORANGE COUNTY - The family of a man who died while being held at the Orange County Jail is filing for a temporary injunction to shut down the jail.
The Bernsen Law Firm is representing the family. An attorney at the firm says the family filed the lawsuit last year against Orange County as well as some of the nurses and correctional officers at the jail.
The attorney says Robert Montano died after being held in solitary confinement without food and water for five days.
KFKM News tried to reach the Orange County District Attorney for comment.
As of news time, we had not heard back.
