CMF employee sues state over second floor workplace

An employee at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville contends the state directed him to work on a second floor at the site, even though he uses a wheelchair and fears being trapped because he won't be able to get out in an emergency at the building with what's described as an unreliable elevator. An Oct. 8 case management conference is scheduled in the suit filed by Robert Dittman against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, which in a legal filing denied Dittman's assertions and stated its actions were fair, just and in good faith.
