Case Result: Licensed Practical Nurse Dismissed From Deliberate Indifference Jail Case


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

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan

The Court dismissed state law claims with prejudice and the 42 USC § 1983 claim without prejudice.

The Court dismissed with prejudice Plaintiff’s state law claims. In addition, the court dismissed without prejudice Plaintiff’s 42 USC § 1983 deliberate indifference claim, where we sought judgment on the pleadings and Plaintiff sought to voluntarily dismiss our licensed practical nurse client. 

The pleadings were insufficient to state a claim against our licensed practical nurse client. The nurse went to see the elderly prisoner who was feeling ill, then assisted with sending the prisoner to the hospital, where the prisoner died. Plaintiff did not pursue filing an amended pleading against the nurse.
