Ramirez v. Young, 15‐3298

Held that a non-English speaking prisoner who brought a lawsuit over alleged constitutional wrongs was excused from the requirement to exhaust his administrative remedies because no prison official ever informed him of the existence of a grievance process in a language he could understand. The prisoner, who spoke Spanish, argued that his failure to exhaust administrative remedies should be excused. Finding merit in his argument, the Seventh Circuit reversed the dismissal of his lawsuit and remanded for further proceedings.
