U.S. Appeals Court: DENIAL OF.

Berry v. Brady, 192 F.3d 504 (5th Cir. 1999). An inmate brought a [sections] 1983 action against a correctional officer alleging violation of his Eighth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. The district court dismissed the claims as frivolous and the appeals court affirmed. The appeals court held that the denial of eight meals over a seven month period did not violate his constitutional rights where he did not claim that he lost weight or suffered other adverse physical effects or was denied a nutritionally and calorically adequate diet, nor that his health was put at risk. The appeals court also held that prohibiting the inmate from visiting with his mother on one occasion did not amount to cruel and unusual punishment.
