BleekeDillonCrandall Wins Summary Judgment
03/22/2011

On March 17, 2011, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana issued an order granting our firm’s summary judgment motion. The Plaintiff alleged that he received inadequate medical and mental health treatment because he was given involuntary psychological medications and placed in segregated psychiatric housing while incarcerated at an Indiana Prison. After considering our firm’s motion for summary judgment, the Court agreed with our arguments that: (1) assigning the Plaintiff to administrative segregation did not implicate his due process interests, and (2) in the context of the Plaintiff’s involuntary medication, the requirements of due process were satisfied. The Court noted that “running a prison is an inordinately difficult undertaking,” and the Plaintiff presented no claim that could possibly be construed as a constitutional violation. Therefore, the Court entered judgment in favor of the Defendants.
