Hatcher v. Evans, et al.

A pro se inmate filed a civil rights action alleging that the officials at the prison where he was incarcerated were deliberately indifferent to his medical need for a nonsmoking environment. The district court dismissed the plaintiff’s complaint.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit affirmed the dismissal, ruling that Hatcher “presented no evidence to satisfy the constitutional standard required to prove an Eighth Amendment violation.  A review of the record reveals no evidence that defendants interfered with plaintiff’s medically-prescribed treatment.”
