Napier v. Preslicka.

U.S. Appeals Court

EMOTIONAL DISTRESS

Napier v. Preslicka, 314 F.3d 528 (11th Cir. 2002). A prisoner brought a pro se action against police officers for emotional injury allegedly resulting from mistaken arrest on a charge unrelated to his current incarceration. The district court dismissed the case as frivolous and the appeals court affirmed. The appeals court held that the alleged emotional harm occurred while the prisoner was in custody, for the purpose of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) section that prohibited a prisoner from bring an action for mental or emotional injury absent a prior showing of physical injury.
