IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
VERNON K. CAPSHAW
J. STIEVE, Doctor;
APN; E. BLAND, APN;
and C. CAPPS, APN
Opposed recommendation, NQ 69, adopted as modified.
FED. R. C1v. P.
72(b)(3). The modification: The day after Magistrate Judge Volpe entered his
recommendation, the Court received Capshaw' s response to the motion for
summary judgment. NQ 70. The Court has therefore considered that paper,
taken it as an objection too, and reviewed the recommendation de nova. What
pain medicine Capshaw needs for his foot is a medical judgment. Taking the
record in the light most favorable to him, the doctor and nurse practitioners
thought non-opiods would work; they didn't; and the opiod was restored
after suit was filed. This was, at most, negligence, not deliberate indifference.
The motion for summary judgment, NQ 62, is granted. Capshaw' s complaint
will be dismissed with prejudice. Capshaw' s motions for appointed counsel
and a status update, NQ 71 & 72, are denied as moot.
D.P. Marshall Jr.
United States District Judge
