Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation filed August 14, 2012 by the Honorable
James R. Marschewski, Chief United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas.
(ECF No. 70). Judge Marschewski recommends granting in part and denying in part Separate
Defendants’ Motions for Summary Judgment. (ECF Nos. 57 and 60). The parties have not filed
objections to the Report and Recommendation, and the time to object has passed. See 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1). Therefore, the Court adopts the Report and Recommendation in toto.
Separate Defendant Nurse William’s Motion for Summary Judgment (ECF No. 57) is
GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Specifically, the Motion (ECF No. 57) should be
granted with respect to: (1) all official capacity claims against Nurse Williams; (2) Plaintiff’s
retaliation claim regarding denial of medical care; and (3) Plaintiff’s retaliation claim regarding
denial of injury report. This leaves for later resolution the individual capacity claims against Nurse
Williams regarding retaliation: (1) by enticing inmates to attack Plaintiff; and (2) locking Plaintiff
down in the “Super-Max.” Separate Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgement (ECF No. 60) is
GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Specifically, the Motion (ECF No. 60) should be
granted with respect to: (1) all official capacity claims against all Separate Defendants; (2) all
individual claims against Corporal Kelli Lafayette, and Corporal Lafayette should be dismissed; (3)
all individual capacity claims of failure to protect against all Separate Defendants; (4) all individual
capacity claims against Officer Sonya Smith, and Officer Sonya Smith should be dismissed; (5) all
individual capacity claims of delay and denial of medical care against all Separate Defendants; and
(6) all individual capacity claims regarding legal mail against all Separate Defendants. This leaves
for latter resolution the individual capacity claims of (1) retaliation against Warden Gary Turner; and
(2) excessive force against Corporal Tracey Smith.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 4th day of September, 2012.
