An inmate at a correctional center in Missouri filed a complaint alleging that the defendants had repeatedly exposed him to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), deliberately placed him with smoking cellmates over his objections and failed to correct his ETS-related health problems and to enforce tobacco-related policies. The District Court granted summary judgment, concluding that Ealey had been promptly separated from his cellmate in 1995 and thereafter was housed only with nonsmokers. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit concluded that the District Court properly granted summary judgment.
