Rinaldi v. US, 16-1080

Reinstated a federal prison inmate's lawsuit alleging that prison officials unconstitutionally retaliated against him by forcing him to cell with an inmate who had threatened to kill him. The case required the Third Circuit to resolve several matters of first impression in the circuit concerning the Prison Litigation Reform Act's procedural requirements and other matters. The panel ultimately vacated dismissal of the inmate's suit in part and remanded.
