Oregon Correctional Officer Sues Inmate

I don’t know that I’ve heard of this before.  The Oregon correctional officers’ union has hired lawyers to sue inmates who assault them for emotional distress damages.  It’s counter to the common notion that inmates who assault guards are given “prison justice,” locked up in the hole, denied food, etc – in this case, the guards are asking the court system to render the justice.  Is this good?  Is it bad?  You tell me.
