Castellanos v. Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, et al.
(August 2008)

Thomas P. Anzelmo and Kyle P. Kirsch won a victory in favor of Jean M. Llovet in the case entitled Castellanos v. Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, 2008 WL 3975606 (E.D. La. 2008). The plaintiff sued Llovet alleging his Civil Rights were violated when the defendants allegedly failed to provide him adequate medical care after he was allegedly seriously injured in an altercation with a prison official. The District Court dismissed plaintiff’s inadequate medical care claims against Llovet because plaintiff’s medical records established that every time a request for medical care was made the medical department promptly responded.
