Plaintiff is an inmate at Lovelock Correctional Center and filed a First Amended Complaint alleging Defendant’s refusal of treatment for his chronic hepatitis C (HCV). Plaintiff became a class representative for a class action relating to HCV and, on November 12, 2019, the district court stayed Plaintiff’s individual case and consolidated 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. Defendants filed an answer to Plaintiff’s Amended Complaint on March 3, 2021. Plaintiff seeks representation for his individual case. Important Date(s): Plaintiff has filed two motions to extend time, which were entered on May 17, 2021 and July 13, 2021. Discovery is now due by September 6, 2021, Motions are due by October 6, 2021, and a Pretrial Order is due by November 5, 2021.
