"A lawyer's either a social engineer or ... a parasite on society. A social engineer [is] a highly skilled, perceptive, sensitive lawyer who [understands] the Constitution of the United States and [knows] how to explore its uses in the solving of problems of local communities and in bettering conditions of the underprivileged citizens."

Hepatitis C Class Action Litigation

Barfield, et al v. Quiros

Ken Krayeske was appointed lead counsel along with Attorney DeVaughn Ward by the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut to represent all inmates since July 2018 for the purposes of testing and treating Hepatitis C in Connecticut prisons.

This landmark lawsuit forced the Connecticut Department of Correction to institute a new HCV policy that as of December 31, 2020 resulted in testing more than 14,000 inmates, learning than 10 percent of those were HCV positive, and curing more than 400 with Direct Acting Antivirals.

The Conencticut General Assembly approved the $40 million settlement and by the time the agreement sunsets in March 2022, it is expected that more than 1,000 people in prison will receive direct acting antivirals to cure their HCV.
