Curtis v. White et al
ORDER ADOPTING 31 Partial Report and Recommendations dismissing Curtis's deliberate-indifference and mail-confiscation claims without prejudice. All defts except White and Bell are dismissed without prejudice. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 10/31/12. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
DEMETRIUS A. CURTIS
RONNIE WHITE, Sheriff, Phillips County;
JAMES JAKOBS, Jailer, Phillips County Jail;
WHITFIELDS, Jail Administrator, Phillips County
Jail; ROBERT BLAKE, Assistant Jail Administrator,
Phillips County Jail; JANE DOE, Ms. Jeanette, Jailer,
Phillips County Jail; JAMES BELL, originally sued
as Bell; and JOHN DOES, Christopher and Caldell,
Trustees, Phillips County Jail
Curtis has objected to Magistrate Judge Beth Deere's recommendation,
Document No. 31, that the Court dismiss two claims and several defendants.
On de novo review,
R. CIV. P. 72(b)(3), the Court adopts the
recommendation with a supplemental word prompted by the objection.
Curtis now says that he showed jailer James Jakobs a bite by a brown-recluse
spider but received no medical attention. Document No. 32, at 2. Curtis does
not allege any injury beyond a bite. In late December 2011, Judge Deere
ordered Curtis to give details about his deliberate-indifference claim within
two weeks or it would be dismissed. Document No. 13. Ten months is too
long to wait before giving details. And while a brown recluse's bite can lead
to serious consequences, Curtis alleges no injury beyond the bite itself. This
belated allegation states no constitutional claim.
indifference and mail-confiscation claims are dismissed without prejudice.
All defendants except White and Bell are dismissed without prejudice.
