Aaron v. Hobbs et al
ORDER ADOPTING PARTIAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS in their entirety. Mr. Aaron's 46 Motion for Preliminary Injunction is denied. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 02/12/2014. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
BARRY G. AARON,
Case No. 5:13-cv-00139-KGB-JTK
RAY HOBBS, et al.
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommendations submitted by
United States Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney (Dkt. No. 50) and the objections filed by
plaintiff Barry G. Aaron (Dkt. Nos. 51, 52). After carefully considering the objections and
making a de novo review of the record in this case, the Court concludes that the Proposed
Findings and Recommendations should be, and hereby are, adopted in their entirety.
Judge Kearney found that Mr. Aaron, by explaining that defendant Dr. Sonya Pepper
Davis examined him on October 14, 2013, and referred him for an appointment with an outside
cardiologist, admitted to being treated for his medical condition (Dkt. No. 50, at 3; see Dkt. No.
46, at 12). In his objection to the Proposed Findings and Recommendations, Mr. Aaron now
claims that Dr. Davis never made this appointment (Dkt. No. 52, at 5). Instead, Mr. Aaron
claims that the appointment with the outside cardiologist was not scheduled until November 6,
2013, by defendant Dr. Jacqueline Carswell, who at the same time also scheduled Mr. Aaron “to
see someone about the continued pain [he] is suffering from” (Id.). Mr. Aaron claims that this
shows that Dr. Davis deliberately delayed needed medical care.
However, taking as true Mr. Aaron’s claim that Dr. Davis failed to schedule the
appointment, there is nothing but Mr. Aaron’s conclusory allegations to suggest it was anything
other than oversight. Moreover, the new information regarding Dr. Carswell confirms that
defendants continue to examine and treat Mr. Aaron, even Mr. Aaron disagrees with the type of
treatment he is receiving.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Mr. Aaron’s motion for preliminary injunction
(Dkt. No. 46) is denied.
SO ORDERED this the 12th day of February, 2014.
KRISTINE G. BAKER
