Jones v. Bock
Lorenzo L. Jones v. Barbara Bock, et al.
Civil Rights, Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA), Exhaustion, Administrative Remedies, Prison conditions, grievance procedures
- Whether satisfaction of the PLRA' s exhaustion requirement is a prerequisite
to a prisoner's federal civil rights suit such that the prisoner must allege in
his complaint how he exhausted his administrative remedies (or attach proof
of exhaustion to the complaint), or instead, whether non-exhaustion is an
affirmative defense that must be pleaded and proven by the defense.
- Whether the PLRA requires a prisoner to name a particular defendant in his
or her administrative grievance in order to exhaust his or her administrative
remedies as to that defendant and to preserve his or her right to sue them.
- Whether the PLRA prescribes a "total exhaustion" rule that requires a federal
district court to dismiss a prisoner's federal civil rights complaint for failure to
exhaust administrative remedies whenever there is a single unexhausted
claim, despite the presence of other exhausted claims.
