Plaintiff is an inmate at High Desert State Prison suffering from chronic pain resulting from a car accident prior to incarceration. In 2006, Plaintiff started pain management and underwent multiple tests in which surgery was deemed necessary, but Plaintiff never received it. Plaintiff then became a Clark County Detention Center (CCDC) inmate in 2010 and received medical care for his chronic pain until September 2015. Despite multiple requests to continue treatment and medication, Plaintiff alleges he did not receive the care requested and that had been received previously from September 2015 to March 2016. In March 2016, Defendants allegedly removed him from “sick call” altogether without explanation and denied him an annual exam for his chronic pain. After submitting multiple grievances to the jail, he filed a 1983 claim alleging Eighth Amendment cruel and unusual punishment and Fourteenth Amendment due process and equal protection violations. Client is seeking counsel through the Federal Pro Bono Program. Next Hearing(s): Status Conference October 8, 2021 at 9:30am.
