Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case on Nov. 1st
In EUGENE DEVBROW v. STEVEN GALLEGOS and JASON SMILEY (ND Ind., Moody), an 8-page opinion, Judge Hamilton writes:
Eugene Devbrow, an Indiana prisoner, challenges the grant of summary judgment against him in this action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 asserting that prison officials denied him access to the courts by confiscating and then destroying his legal papers in retaliation for a prior lawsuit he filed. Because Devbrow failed to show that prison officials actually destroyed his legal documents or took his papers for retaliatory reasons, we affirm.
