42 USC § 1983 — Deliberate Indifference
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan
Voluntary dismissal of all claims against defendant medical services company with prejudice.
An inmate sued defendant prison medical services provider for allegedly refusing to surgically remove broken spinal hardware, denying narcotic pain medication, and refusing to provide sufficient lubricant for the inmate’s self-catheter.
The court granted our client’s motion for summary judgment based on pro se Plaintiff’s failure to exhaust administrative remedies. The court then appointed counsel to plaintiff.
After the inmate was paroled, a second lawsuit was filed alleging the same complaints as the first lawsuit. Our client filed a motion to dismiss. The court ordered Plaintiff to file an amended complaint or risk dismissal of all claims. The Plaintiff filed an amended complaint, which our client answered.
After consultation with Chapman Law Group attorneys, Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed all claims against our client, the medical services provider, with prejudice.
