ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
This matter is before the Court on Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment
(Doc. # 27). For the following reasons, the Court grants Defendants’ motion.
At the time of the events alleged in the Amended Complaint, Plaintiff was an
inmate in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons (“BOP”), and resided at the Federal
Prison Camp (“FPC”) in Florence, Colorado. (Doc. # 15 at 2.) The only remaining
causes of action in his First Amended Complaint are two Eighth Amendment claims
relating to the conditions in which he lived at FPC. The government alleges and
substantiates, through a declaration from a BOP official, that Plaintiff has not pursued
either of his remaining claims with the BOP Administrative Remedy program. See Doc.
# 27-1, ¶¶ 14, 28. Plaintiff has not disputed any of the facts raised in the government’s
affidavit—indeed, he has not even responded to the summary judgment motion.
Plaintiff’s undisputed failure to exhaust administrative remedies before filing this action
precludes any relief from this Court. See 42 U.S.C.A. § 1997e(a) (“No action shall be
brought with respect to prison conditions under section 1983 of this title, or any other
Federal law, by a prisoner confined in any jail, prison, or other correctional facility until
such administrative remedies as are available are exhausted.”).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment
(Doc. # 27) is GRANTED and that the Complaint is DISMISSED WITHOUT
