Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today
In Kenneth Collins v. Nadir Al-Shami (SD Ind., Pratt), a 14-page opinion, Judge Flaum writes:
Following an arrest for driving while intoxicated, Kenneth Collins was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Indiana. Collins later sued a jail physician and the physician’s employer (a private corporation) under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and Indiana state law, claiming that the doc‐ tor had provided inadequate medical care to Collins during his detention. The district court awarded summary judgment to defendants, and we affirm.
