Petersen v. Reisch, No. 09-1899

By FindLaw Staff on November 04, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action by a prisoner alleging inadequate medical treatment, defendants' appeal from a denial of summary judgment based on qualified immunity is dismissed where the district court's order did not in fact resolve the qualified immunity issue and was purely administrative in nature, and therefore was not appealable.
