Case settled and result sealed
By order of a circuit judge, there will be no trial of the civil pleadings of a man who claims that, while an Oconee County jail inmate, he was beaten by a fellow prisoner. Rickie Joe Moore had sued the Oconee Detention Center, and the case got as far as a jury strike during last week’s term of Common Pleas Court. But that’s when, according to a court officer, word of a settlement came. The court officer said Judge Cordell Maddox has decreed that the terms settling Moore v. Oconee Detention Center are to remained sealed.
