Plaintiff, a pro se prisoner at Dade Correctional Institution, filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. section 1983 alleging abuse by a number of employees of the institutions in which he has been incarcerated. Plaintiffs complaint alleges three claims: a claim of deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs, a claim Defendants violated the Eighth Amendment's prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, and a claim Defendants violated his Fourteenth Amendment right to due process. Plaintiff states he suffers from a number of mental illnesses for which he was denied treatment. Because of Plaintiff's self-reported mental illness, he seeks a volunteer lawyer to represent him in his case. Summary judgment has been granted for the Defendants; Plaintiff has appealed.
