Case Number: 2019-007317


In Federal

Plaintiff is an inmate a Lovelock Correctional Center who has 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 district court stayed Plaintiff’s individual case and consolidated it as part of the 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. On November 12, 2020, the district court entered an order lifting the stay in Plaintiff’s case and he now seeks representation to help him obtain monetary damages and injunctive relief.
