January 9, 2017
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
ANDREW JOHN GIBSON, Defendant.
Hoffman, Jr. United States Magistrate Judge
before the Court is Defendant Andrew John Gibson's motion
for prescribed medication (ECF No. 100), filed on October 21,
2016. In his motion, Defendant requests that the Court order
Nevada Southern Detention Center (NSDC) to provide him with
the prescription medications that he had been taking before
his arrival there. Upon review of Defendant's motion, the
Court ordered NSDC to provide a report to the Court as to
Defendant's current medical condition, and its opinion as
to whether he is receiving adequate medical care. The report,
prepared by a Dr. Daniel Sussman of NSDC, has been received
by the Court. Defendant also received a copy of the report
and filed a reply (ECF No. 133) in support of his original
motion on December 30, 2016.
review, Dr. Sussman states that based on his most recent
examination on December 2, 2016, Defendant is in very good
psychiatric condition, and that his current prescription
regimen has changed, but is appropriate for his medical
needs. Moreover, Dr. Sussman indicates it is NSDC policy not
to administer the amphetamine class prescriptions requested
by Defendant. Accordingly, Defendant's request for a
change to his prescriptions is denied.
THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendant's motion for prescribed
medication (ECF No. 100) is DENIED.
