DECISIONS OF INTEREST:

Sims v. Scott, et al .. Case No. 94-3175-RDR, District of Kansas, USP Leavenworth.
In this personal liability action plaintiff alleged that, while confined at the USP
Leavenworth his constitutional rights were violated by virtue of his continued and
improper confinement in the segregation unit. Plaintiff's allegations concerned this
protracted segregation confinement, medical care, and access to the courts. Inmate
Sims requested declaratory. injunctive relief as well as punitive and compensatory
damages in the amount of $1000000.00.
Records and other facts before the Court indicated plaintiff was properly confined in
segregation for legitimate security concerns and therefore no due process claims and
issues were implicated. Additionally, the record documents plaintiff's regular contact
with medical staff where his medical complaints were addressed. Finally. plaintiff
enjoyed access to the courts in that he had access to a basic law library, was able to
request additional. legal materials through the Education Department, and was allowed
access to the administrative remedy procedure.

Summary Judgment entered May 1, 1995.
PENDING CASES OF INTEREST:
Dixon v. USA, et ai" Case No. 94-3309-RDR, District of Kansas, USP Leavenworth.
There has been no formal decision from the DOJ Torts Branch regarding
representation for the named defendants in this hybrid FTCA\Bivens case. The NCRO
provided the Torts Branch with a supplemental memorandum justifying representation
for the defendants. The AUSA who was defending the action withdrew from the case
and,a new AUSA has made an entry of appearance.

Weeks v. USA, Case No. 94-3381-RDR. District of Kansas, USP Leavenworth
The AUSA who was defending the Weeks action was reluctant to respond on behalf of
the United States until the DOJ Torts Branch makes a decision regarding
representation in the Dixon action. After motioning for a further 30 day extension, she
withdrew from the case and a new AUSA made an entry of appearance.

ADMINISTRATIVE CLAIMS OF INTEREST
Luciano Paolone, 03368-089, T-NCR-95-227, Personal Injury-$1,OOO,OOO.OO, FCI
Oxford.
In this administrative claim inmate Paolone alleges he was the victim of an assault by
other inmates and that subsequent to the assault the Bureau of Prisons failed to
render time and appropriate medical care resulting in permanent injuries to his eye.
The institution investigation substantiates inmate Paolone was injured as alleged.
Further, segregation and medical records reflect the inmate made numerous requests
and complaints regarding an eye injury sustained in the assault. The record tends to
indicate the claimant may not have been provided timely diagnosis or care for his
injuries and that. delay in diagnosis and treatment made any attempt to subsequently
treat his eye injury more difficult and less likely to be successful.
Due to the potentially negligent acts of staff in this claim it was referred to the Central
Office, for further review and disposition.
