Civil Rights 42 U.S.C. §1983
US District Court – Eastern District of Michigan/ 6th Circuit Court of Appeals
Plaintiff alleged that clients were deliberately indifferent and violated his Eighth Amendment because they failed to diagnose and treat neurosarcoidosis, which he claimed to have suffered from. The delay may have been negligence but could not support a deliberate indifference claim. The District Court granted our Motion for Summary Judgment and Plaintiff appealed. The Court of Appeals issued an unpublished Opinion stating that Plaintiff failed to show material fact as to his claimed Eighth Amendment violation and, therefore, affirmed the judgment of the District Court, dismissing our clients. It was argued that records showed that our clients aggressively treated Plaintiff and made appropriate request for testing and, therefore, did not violate his constitutional rights.
