Phelps v. Kapnolas.

U.S. Appeals Court


Phelps v. Kapnolas, 308 F.3d 180 (2nd Cir. 2002). A state inmate brought a [section] 1983 action alleging violation of his Eighth Amendment rights resulting from his placement on a nutritionally inadequate diet. The district court dismissed the complaint. The appeals court reversed and remanded with instructions. The court held that the inmate stated an Eighth Amendment violation with his allegations that prison officials deprived him of a nutritionally adequate diet for 14 days, and that they knew this deprivation was likely to inflict pain and suffering.
