Snelling v. Heyns et al
ORDER Granting Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment In Its Entirety 32 15 . Signed by District Judge Victoria A. Roberts. (LVer)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTICT OF MICHIGAN
THOMAS R. SNELLING,
Case No. 15-13797
Honorable Victoria A. Roberts
RICHARD NEWSOME and
ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
IN ITS ENTIRETY [ECF NOS. 15; 32]
Thomas Snelling (“Snelling”) is incarcerated in the Michigan Department of
Corrections (“MDOC”). He filed a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 pro se civil rights action against
various MDOC employees named as Defendants. He alleges constitutional violations.
This case is complicated because Defendants’ failed to provide the Court with
copies of all grievances in their motion for summary judgment. As a result, the Court
entered an order partially disposing of Snelling’s claims. (Doc. 39). Defendants then
filed a motion for reconsideration that encompassed the remaining claims. (Doc. 40).
Subsequently, the Court on its own motion, dismissed all Defendants sua sponte
except Richard Newsome and Stephan Braman. (Doc. 46).
The Court was not able to fully dispose of Defendants’ motion for reconsideration
because once again, the Defendants’ failed to provide documentation that grievance
ARF-1504-0952-28a (“ARF-0952”) was not against Newsome and Braman. The Court
partially held Defendants’ motion in abeyance. Defendants have now provided the Court
with grievance ARF-0952 that makes clear this remaining grievance does not pertain to
the remaining Defendants.
As a result, Defendants’ motion for summary judgment is GRANTED in its
Judgment will enter in favor of Defendants.
IT IS ORDERED.
