MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: Because Governmental divisions and departments are not suable entities, all claims brought by Plaintiff against the Hamilton County Jail Sheriff and Medical Staff, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, will be DENIED and these Defendants will be DISMISSED sua sponte from this lawsuit. Based on the foregoing, the Court finds that Plaintiff failed to allege any constitutional violation in his complaint and therefore failed to state any valid § 1983 claims against Defendants. Thus, this case will be DISMISSED sua sponte in its entirety under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii) for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Signed by District Judge J Ronnie Greer on 11/07/2016. (C/M to pro se Plaintiff) (AMP) Modified on 11/7/2016 (BDG, ). Mailed to Payne.
