CASE ENTRY

Marbury v. Warden

“We do not sentence people to be stabbed and beaten. But we might as well, if the Majority Opinion is correct.” So begins the scathing dissent to this Eleventh Circuit ruling, in which the majority finds that prison officials were not deliberately indifferent to the dangers of being stabbed and beaten after an inmate—who told them that he had witnessed 15 stabbings and that he himself had been threatened with stabbing—was stabbed and beaten.
