Default White Oregon couple sues Seattle, King County over baseball bat attack by repeat negro offender


Oregon couple sues Seattle, King County over baseball bat attack by repeat offender

Updated: Aug 27, 2019 - 7:41 PM

An Oregon couple is suing both the city of Seattle and King County over an attack with a baseball bat by a man they allege was released from custody without a sufficient mental evaluation.

The plaintiffs, James and Melanie Richardson, were attacked in Westlake Center prior to attending a Mariners game Aug. 24, 2016. While window shopping, they say a man, Nail Mulazim Muied, attacked them with a baseball bat. He had also attacked another person with the bat prior to approaching the Richardsons.

Muied has an extensive criminal history, including prior felony convictions for third-degree assault, felony harassment and a lengthy misdemeanor record.

The couple sustained serious injuries that required surgery and extensive neurological rehab, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that King County and Seattle were negligent in their releases of Muied by failing to request a mental health evaluation and his civil commitment.

The lawsuit is asking for damages in the form of past and future medical costs, other special damages and emotional distress. An amount was not specified.
