Richardson v. Runnels, No. 07-16736

By FindLaw Staff on January 13, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a 42 U.S.C. section 1983 action by a prisoner alleging that he was placed in racially discriminatory lockdowns, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed in part where the lockdown did not violate due process because it did not impose extraordinary hardship on plaintiff. However, the order is reversed in part where defendants offered no evidence to disprove plaintiff's claim of racial discrimination.
