Wrongful-death claim in Snohomish County Jail case

The Associated Press

EVERETT — The mother of a man who died in the Snohomish County Jail has filed notice of a wrongful-death claim against the county.

The lawyer for Rose Saffioti says she deserves answers about the death of Michael Saffioti.

Attorney James S. Rogers says the jail failed to document his life-threatening allergy to dairy products and declined to place him in a medical unit.

The 22-year-old had turned himself in to Lynnwood police in July 2012 for a misdemeanor marijuana-possession warrant and died the next day in the jail after breakfast.

Saffioti is one of eight people who have died at the jail since 2010.

A claim is often a precursor to a lawsuit.
