Plaintiff, an inmate at Clark County Detention Center, filed suit against several correctional officers under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 claiming that an altercation at the High Desert State Prison left him with several staples in his head and a disciplinary charge for battery. Six of those officers move for summary judgment on the claims arguing that various immunities and procedural bars prohibit his recovery. They add that no genuine dispute exists about his excessive-force claim because several officers were not involved in the fight and those that were did not use excessive force. Plaintiff disagrees and provided declarations of other inmates and his own declaration to support his version of the story. Plaintiff is seeking assistance with this case through the Federal Pro Bono Program. Next Deadline(s): NOA due October 26, 2021.
