Entry Screening Complaint and Directing Service of Process - The complaint names the following defendants: 1) Richard Brown, 2) Teresa Littlejohn, 3) Rich Larson, 4) Corizon Health, Inc. ("Corizon"), and 5) Wexford Health Sources, Inc. ("Wexford"). The plaintiff alleges that the defendants were deliberately indifferent to his loss of vision in one eye, delaying treatment which resulted in permanent vision loss. The loss of vision interferes with his ability to read, work, and avoid potential altercations with other inmates. He alleges that Corizon and Wexford have a policy, enforced by Richard Brown, of delaying treatment for inmates outside the age range of 19-62 years because treatment costs for those inmates are not offset by the HIP 2.0 Medicaid expansion program. The claims against Teresa Littlejohn are dismissed. The claims against Richard Brown are dismissed. The claims against Rich Larsen are dismissed. The claim that Mr. Russelburg's Eighth Amendment rights were violated by Corizon and Wexford shall proceed. This summary of remaining claims includes all of the viable claims identified by the Court. All other claims have been dismissed. If the plaintiff believes that additional claims were alleged in the complaint, but not identified by the Court, he shall have through April 13, 2018, in which to identify those claims. The clerk is designated pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(3) to issue process to defendants Corizon Health, Inc. and Wexford Health Sources, Inc. in the manner specified by Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d). (See Entry.) Copies distributed pursuant to distribution list. Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 3/19/2018.(RSF)
