CASE ENTRY

Thomas v. Anderson

Allegation: Prisoner at Galesburg, Ill. correctional facility with a history of filing grievances is warned that if he keeps it up, guards will retaliate against him. Prisoner files a grievance about the threat of retaliation … leading to the promised retaliation (in the form of a beating and an extended stay in restricted confinement). Seventh Circuit: There’s enough in these allegations for this to go to a jury; the trial court was wrong to dismiss the case.
