Plaintiff is an inmate at High Desert State Prison who submitted a complaint alleging that the Nevada Department of Corrections’ (NDOC) medical staff failed to provide treatment for his chronic hepatitis C (HCV). On August 6, 2019, the U.S. District Court stayed Plaintiff’s individual case and consolidated it as part of a class action relating to HCV. 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. The case remained stayed for an opportunity to settle until June 2, 2021 when the court lifted the stay. No settlement agreement was reached and Plaintiff seeks representation for his individual case.
