Presnell v. Hollyfield

February 11, 2008

MORGAN PRESNELL, TDOC#210482
v.
PAT HOLLYFIELD (HEAD NURSE), BRENDA DOWNES (MAJOR OF FACILITY), DEBRA CLOYD (MENTAL HEALTH THERAPIST), AND BRUCE FILLERS (NURSE)



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Leon Jordan United States District Judge

MEMORANDUM

This pro se state prisoner's civil rights case for injunctive relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 is before the Court upon plaintiff's notice of an address change to the Carter County jail. [Doc. 4]. At issue in this lawsuit are plaintiff's allegations that he was subjected to unconstitutional conditions in the Washington County Detention Center [WCDC], where he was formerly housed. Since plaintiff is not imprisoned in the WCDC and since, obviously, he is no longer exposed to the purported wrongful conditions therein, all issues concerning injunctive relief with respect to those conditions have become moot by virtue of his transfer to another facility. Kensu v. Haigh, 87 F.3d 172, 175 (6th Cir.1996). Finally, since this action only sought injunctive relief and since those claims have become moot, the case will be DISMISSED as moot by a separate order.
