Inmate Sues Dateline

AP via TVNewser:

An inmate is suing Dateline NBC and the Arizona Department of Corrections, claiming he was assaulted in prison after the television show labeled him a ‘snitch.’ Dateline aired a show about Thomas Morgan‘s case on March 11, 2005, and he was “attacked by six to eight other inmates within 30 minutes of the show’s airing, suffering cracked ribs and a concussion, said his attorney, G. David DeLozier.”

Surprisingly, Dateline‘s Chris Hanson and addictive “Predator” episodes did not appear to have anything to do with it.
