Doe v. Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Ctr. Comm’n

The defendant juvenile center is entitled to summary judgment as to a minor inmate’s claim regarding inadequate mental health treatment. However, disputed issues of fact precluding summary judgment with regard to his excessive force claim, including use of restraints, and to his claim based on the use of room confinement. These disputes exist both as to whether Doe has suffered an underlying constitutional violation and to the remaining elements of his claims under Monell v. Dept. of Soc. Servs., 436 U.S. 568 (1978).

Motion for summary judgment granted in part and denied in part.

Doe v. Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Ctr. Comm’n, No. 5:17cv97, Dec. 13, 2018. WDVA at Harrisonburg (Dillon).
