Case Result: No Evidence of Deliberate Indifference in Defendant’s Treatment for Hepatitis C

Areas of Law:
42 USC § 1983 — Deliberate Indifference
Correctional Healthcare

6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Affirmed dismissal of case by lower court

The Magistrate Judge properly found that Plaintiff had failed to show any evidence of deliberate indifference as to Defendant’s treatment of his Hepatitis C, where there was uncontradicted evidence that the doctor had provided treatment both before and after the alleged denial of treatment. Therefore, Plaintiff appears to allege that his treatment was unsatisfactory and he disagreed with the doctor’s course of treatment. These facts do not meet the standard of deliberate indifference, where Plaintiff has failed to show that the doctor specifically denied him any treatment, or knew of and disregarded any risk to Plaintiff’s health.
