Ex-Ramsey County inmates to get TB payouts

Star Tribune, by Chris Havens

By settling, the county admitted no fault.

A multimillion-dollar deal between Ramsey County and those exposed to tuberculosis in the county workhouse in 2008 was approved by a federal judge. The settlement covers inmates who were at the workhouse between April 17 and June 9, 2008. After the infected inmates came forward, the county sought people who were there during that time and offered to test them for the disease.

About 170 former inmates tested negative, while 93 tested positive for latent infection and seven tested positive for active TB. Nearly 200 more people have yet to be tested.
