SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah County man has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against a nurse at the Utah County Jail for failing to give him proper medical care while he was an inmate.

He says that as a result, he may have been rendered sterile. The lawsuit says the man wasn't properly examined when he complained he had severe swelling and pain. The lawsuit claims negligence on the part of the nurse as well as a violation of constitutional rights.

It seeks an unspecified amount of damages.
