Plaintiff is an inmate at Warm Springs Correctional Center and has alleged two Eighth Amendment claims for deliberate indifference to serious medical needs as well as a Fourteenth Amendment equal protection claims. Plaintiff became a class representative for a class action relating to chronic hepatitis C (HCV) and on August 6, 2019, the district court stayed Plaintiff’s individual case to consolidate it as part of the class action. The class action litigation resulted in a consent decree which requires NDOC to provide treatment to all inmates with chronic HCV. The consent decree does not preclude Plaintiff from continuing his individual lawsuit seeking monetary damages, from seeking declaratory or injunctive relief on his as-applied individual claims, or from asserting other claims that do not pertain to the general prospective relief issues about NDOC’s policies and practices that were addressed in the consent decree. Plaintiff seeks representation for his individual case to help him pursue monetary damages, declaratory relief, and injunctive relief for injuries related to chronic HCV and other injuries.
