Hummer v. Dalton

An inmate brought a pro se civil rights action alleging various unconstitutional deprivations arising out of conditions of imprisonment.  He attempted to have his complaint about smoke apply to other inmates but the case was filed on his behalf alone.  He admitted that he has been provided with special accommodations free from smoke.  The District Court ruled that the inmate failed to show any constitutional deprivation; the Court of Appeals affirmed.

657 F.2d 621 (4th Cir. 1981).
