Blake v. Ross, 13-7279

District court's dismissal of inmate-plaintiff's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 claim on the grounds that plaintiff failed to exhaust his administrative remedies as required by the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) 42 U.S.C. section 1997e(a), is reversed where plaintiff reasonably believed that he had sufficiently exhausted his remedies by complying with an internal investigation.
