UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:15-cv-00110-APG-CWH
LAS VEGAS METROPOLITAN POLICE
DEPARTMENT, et al.,
Plaintiff Nathan Okpoti filed this lawsuit against defendants Las Vegas Metropolitan
Police Department (“LVMPD”), Officer John Brandon, and the City of Las Vegas. Okpoti
alleges that he suffered a stroke while driving and that Officer Brandon arrested him on suspicion
of driving under the influence instead of obtaining medical care for him. He further alleges
Officer Brandon took him to the Las Vegas Detention Center, where he remained in custody for
several days and did not receive medical attention.
In response to the defendants’ summary judgment motions, Okpoti relies heavily on a
booking photo, which he contends shows the left side of his face drooping. ECF No. 86-1 at 2. In
order to fully evaluate Okpoti’s argument, I direct him to submit to chambers for inspection the
version of the booking photo depicted at ECF No. 86-1 at 2 that he hopes to show to the jury.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that on or before February 24, 2017, plaintiff Nathan
Okpoti shall submit to chambers for inspection the version of the booking photo depicted at ECF
No. 86-1 at 2 that he hopes to show to the jury. If Okpoti does not do so, I will resolve the
summary judgment motions based on the evidence provided.
DATED this 17th day of February, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
