Case Number: 2023-000471

In Federal Pro Bono Program

Plaintiff sues multiple defendants seeking monetary and injunctive relief for events that took place while he was being transferred from Southern Desert Correctional Center to Northern Nevada Correctional Center. Prior to 2021, Plaintiff suffered a series of strokes that left him paralyzed on his right side. Although he subsequently regained minimal function of his right side, he continues to suffer from severe pain in his legs, knees, and ankles, muscle spasms, and dysfunction in his left shoulder, wrists, knees, feet, and ankles. As a result, Plaintiff has limited mobility and he requires a walker to move around. On March 15, 2021, Plaintiff was scheduled to be transported from one facility to another. In order to transport him, correctional officers allegedly placed him in ankle and waist restraints and told him to step up into the van, which was two-and-a-half feet off the ground. Plaintiff, who was using a walker at the time, asked for an ADA van/vehicle but his request was allegedly ignored. Instead, he claims they violently tossed, slammed, and pushed him into the van, causing him to experience pain and injury to his shoulders, wrist, hip, neck, leg, and knees. He experienced pain throughout the 5 hour trip and extending beyond that. As a result, Plaintiff sues multiple defendants seeking monetary and injunctive relief and is in need of an attorney through the Federal Pro Bono Program to assist him with his lawsuit. Next Deadline(s): 120-Day Report due 5/12/2023.
