Marcy Prisoner With Sickle Cell Was Told No Opioids In Jail Now Trial to Start in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 27 – Mali Wilkerson is imprisoned in Marcy Correctional Facility. He has sickle cell anemia and has been prescribed opioids.

But he was told that Marcy "does not prescribe opiods." His lawyers moved for a conference in the wider prison conditions case he is in.

In that wider case a trial, or something like a trial, was scheduled to begin on September 5, 2023. On September 1 there was a final pre-trial conference before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Loretta A. Preska. Inner City Press covered it.

 There was bickering about the caption, and about how long for post-trial briefs. Judge Preska said 7 days, as she has a criminal trial starting on September 13. One witness will be picked up by car service. The pain continues.

 Back on May 27, 2022 Judge Preskaheld a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

   The defendants said that his prescription was there and the opiods should be available. Plaintiff's counsel said that has not been the case.

 Judge Preska said no one should want someone to suffer over a three day weekend needlessly. She told the defendants to make it happen. 

 After the conference the plaintiff's lawyers wrote in that "I was just contacted by Mr. Keane and Ms. Stanford who spoke with Dr. Zaki at Marcy. They indicated Mr. Wilkerson's medications would be delivered to the facility by tonight..

 This reality, of course, belies any notion that Mr. Wilderson had access to the medication prior to today's conference."

The wider case is Allen et al v. New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision et al., 19-cv-8173 (Preska)
