NOTICE: Eighth Circuit Rule 28A(k) governs citation of unpublished opinions and provides that they are not precedent and generally should not be cited unless relevant to establishing the doctrines of res judicata, collateral estoppel, the law of the case, or if the opinion has persuasive value on a material issue and no published opinion would serve as well.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa.
Before BOWMAN, Chief Judge, WOLLMAN, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.
Dennis Brooks, an Iowa inmate, appeals from the district court's1 order denying his request for a preliminary injunction in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit. We affirm.
Brooks alleged in his suit that he was housed in the same cell with one inmate who had hepatitis and another who was HIV positive, and that defendant Jerry Connelly thereafter refused to have Brooks tested for the diseases. Brooks sought a preliminary injunction ordering defendants to release him for testing outside the prison. Brooks does not dispute, however, that he has since been tested at the facility where he is currently housed. After careful review we conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion when it denied preliminary injunctive relief after considering the factors listed in Dataphase Systems, Inc. v. C L Systems, Inc., 640 F.2d 109, 113 (8th Cir.1981) (en banc). See Stuart Hall Co. v. Ampad Corp., 51 F.3d 780, 784 (8th Cir.1995) (standard of review). Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed.
A true copy.
The Honorable Robert W. Pratt, United States District Judge for the Southern District of Iowa
