Abby Lee Miller was planning to sue the government for allegedly putting her life at risk while incarcerated but claims her former lawyer dropped the ball.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the reality star is suing The Claypool Law Firm and Natalie Vallejos. The suit accuses the defendants of professional negligence, breach of duty and legal malpractice.
In the suit, Abby explains she was released from prison on March 26, 2018. As she was being released, “a female prison guard forcefully kicked her in the head with her boot. Shortly thereafter, Plaintiff was transported to a half-way house in Hollywood, California.”
While incarcerated, Abby claims she was deprived of her thyroid and diabetes medications that were essential. The suit says, “The removal of these medications lowered Plaintiff’s immune system, significantly contributing to the looming health crisis she would soon face.”
