GRETNA – A man who claims he was attacked and stabbed in prison is suing the Louisiana Bar Association and a U.S. Attorney who prosecuted him for $20 million.

Frank L. McCall Jr. filed suit against the Louisiana State Bar Association and U.S. Attorney Donald Washington in the 24th Judicial District Court on Nov. 25.

McCall claims that had the Louisiana State Bar Association and Donald, in his capacity as U.S. Attorney, reported judicial misconduct and fraud in 2004 on behalf of his attorney, who he says was not a licensed Louisiana attorney, he would not have later suffered injuries after being attacked and stabbed several times by two inmates. The plaintiff alleges that the defendants have also allowed the state’s laws to be used to overpopulate Louisiana’s prison system.

Damages in the amount of $20,000,000 plus attorney’s fees and court costs is sought by the plaintiff.

McCall is representing himself pro se.

The case has been assigned to Division J Judge Stephen C. Grefer.

Case no. 744-835.
