By FindLaw Staff on August 04, 2009 3:48 PM

In an action against prison administrators for indifference to plaintiff's medical needs, summary judgment for defendants is reversed where: 1) no administrative remedies were available for plaintiff to exhaust; and 2) plaintiff, who was acting pro se, was plainly and reasonably confused over whether defendants' summary judgment motion remained pending.
