Goldsmith v. White.

U.S. District Court


PLRA -- Prisoner Litigation Reform Act

Goldsmith v. White, 357 F.Supp.2d 1336 (N.D.Fla. 2005). An inmate brought a federal civil rights action, alleging that a correctional officer took his contact lenses because of the inmate's homosexuality. The district court dismissed the case. The court held that the inmate failed to exhaust his administrative remedies as required by the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA). Although the inmate had filed a series of administrative grievances and appeals challenging the taking of his contact lenses, those filings made no assertion that he was homosexual or that his sexual orientation had anything to do with the taking of the lenses.
