RICCARDO v. RAUSCH, 02-1961

Evidence does not support the jury verdict for plaintiff-prisoner in this civil rights suit. The record does not permit a reasonable jury to find that defendant knew or deliberately disregarded the fact that his actions subjected plaintiff to a substantial risk of serious harm by being paired with a member of the Latin Kings.
