Leighton 'Livity' Coke – File
A new date has been set for the Constitutional Court to hear a lawsuit brought against the State by Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke, the brother of former Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.
The matter has been set for January 27, 2014.
The hearing was initially set for today.
However, Coke’s attorney Chuck Cameron told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that a scheduling clash forced the change.
Coke is seeking compensation for the alleged beating he received from soldiers at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre last year.
He and five high-risk prisoners claimed they were severely beaten by the soldiers.
Coke is also claiming that his constitutional rights were breached as a result of the beatings and that he was treated inhumanely during his incarceration.
The respondents in the suit are the Commissioner of Corrections, the Chief of Staff of the Jamaica Defense Force, the Ministry of National Security and the Attorney General.
Coke is being represented by Attorneys-at-Law Carolyn Reid-Cameron and Chukwuemeka Cameron.
The JDF reported that Coke received his injuries while being restrained after he attacked three soldiers.
