IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION KENDRICK C. STORY, ADC #109934 v. PLAINTIFF No. 5:13-cv-195-DPM MAXCIE FOOTE, Major, Randall L. Williams Unit, ADC; JOHN LOWE, Deputy Warden, Randall L. Williams Unit, ADC; LARRY MAY, Chief Deputy Director, ADC; and JOHN HERRINGTON, Captain, ADC DEFENDANTS ORDER Motion for reconsideration, NQ 8, denied. Whether a female security guard may have seen Story's strip search on camera does not make a legal difference. A female guard could have been present without intruding on Story's Fourth Amendment rights. Hill v. McKinley, 311 F.3d 899,903-04 (8th Cir. 2002). A camera doesn't change things. "Visual surveillance is an essentialfactorinmaintainingprisonsecurity." Timm v. Gunter, 917F.2d 1093, 1101 (8th Cir. 1990). And the prison's concerns for safety outweighs the intrusion on privacy resulting from surveillance. 917 F.2d at 1102. As to Story's back problem and having to eat with dirty hands, the motion to reconsider is denied for the reasons previously stated. NQ 6 at 2-3. The motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, NQ 9, is also denied. This Court certified in its Judgment, NQ 7, that an appeal in forma pauperis would not be taken in good faith. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3). Story must pay the $455.00 filing fee if he wishes to pursue his appeal. So Ordered. 27 D.P. Marshall Jr. United States District Judge I&. 1/VjA.JSf· )..0/3 -2-
