On June 5, 2017, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois denied the defendants’ motion for summary judgment against Osbaldo Jose-Nicolas, an inmate at Menard Correctional Center who alleges that the former warden violated his Eighth Amendment right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment.  Mr. Jose-Nicolas is represented by Kevin Green and Peter D’Angelo of Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli, P.C.  The Court rejected the defendants’ argument that Mr. Jose-Nicolas failed to exhaust his administrative remedies within the prison system.
