ORDER - Plaintiff Lance Igou is a 29-year old inmate at the New Castle Correctional Facility. [Filing No. 1 at 1.] In his Complaint, Mr. Igou alleges that while incarcerated, he has been denied treatment for an eye condition, resulting in permanent vision impairment and the potential loss of his eye. [Filing No. 1 at 4-10.] He raises four claims in this matter: (1) violation of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983; (2) violation of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, under the standard articulated in Monell v. Dep't of Soc. Servs. of City of New York, 436 U.S. 658 (1978); (3) violation of Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 16; and (4) negligence. [Filing No. 1 at 10-13.] Mr. Igou requests an injunction requiring treatment of his eye, damages, attorneys' fees, and any other relief that may be just and proper. [Filing No. 1 at 13-14.] Defendants Hanna Winningham, Megan Miller, and Corizon, LLC (collectively "Defendants") have moved for judgment on the pleadings pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(c).1 [Filing No. 33.] That Motion is currently ripe for the Court's review. For the reasons described above, the Court GRANTS Defendants' Motion to Dismiss Count III, 33, but only to the extent that Count III seeks monetary damages. In any other way, the claim stated in Count III remains pending in this case. No partial final judgment shall issue. (See Order). Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 2/23/2018. (APD)
