Dismissed on Summary Judgment; no appeal
The inmate Plaintiff was incarcerated in a county jail and complained of a skin infection. Medical personnel at the inmate’s facility properly assessed the patient and provided appropriate treatment before transferring the inmate to a local hospital.
Plaintiff sued Defendant County, alleging that treatment for his Fournier’s Gangrene was improperly delayed due to the County’s policies.
The Court granted summary judgment in favor of our client, without a hearing, opining that the Defendant County’s policies were constitutional and that there was no merit to Plaintiff’s argument that he received no medical treatment at all.
