Joseph Goldberg Obtains Summary Judgment in Favor of Mental Health Provider

    Obtained summary judgment in favor of the private mental health services provider to Delaware’s prison system in a case venued in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. The Court found the mental health services provider did not violate the plaintiff’s constitutional rights and therefore could not be liable based on a theory that it established or maintained an unconstitutional policy or custom responsible for violating the plaintiff’s rights. The Court determined the evidence of record does not support the plaintiff’s claim of deliberate indifference to his mental health needs.
