IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
ROBERT THOMAS MAXWELI/G-DOFFEE
RICHARD CLARK, Sgt., ADC Maximum
Security Unit, and RODERICK L. COOKSEY, JR.,
Corporal, ADC Maximum Security Unit
1. Motion, Ng 147, granted as modified. Motions in limine due by
29 July 2016; responses due by 5 August 2016. Pre-trial disclosures, trial
briefs, and jury instructions due by 10 August 2016.
2. The Court has previously referred to Maxwell/ G-Doffee' s first claim
as an excessive force claim; and many of the acts described in his complaint
fit that framework.
But acts that never serve a legitimate penological
purpose-like sexual assault-are better submitted in terms of deliberate
indifference. E.g., Whitley v. Albers, 475 U.S. 312, 320-21 (1986). The Court
asks the parties to think about this distinction and address it in their proposed
instructions and pre-trial submissions.
