Nelson v. Correctional Med. Servs., No. 07-2481
In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action claiming that defendant prison personnel interfered with plaintiff's childbirth, denial of summary judgment to defendants is affirmed in part where a reasonable fact-finder could determine that there was substantial evidence of one officer's general awareness of the risk of harm from shackling a woman in labor. However, the district court's order is reversed in part where there was no evidence of deliberate indifference to plaintiff's health on the part of the prison director.
