Jameson v. Desta (Cal. Ct. App. - April 29, 2013)

Yes.  It's true.  Plaintiff is claiming that he received too much medical treatment while in prison.

The Court of Appeal nonetheless gets this one right.  For the third time.  It previously twice reversed the trial court's dismissal of plaintiff's lawsuit.  Now it does so again.

Pretty impressive for a pro se litigant.

Which is not to say that Jameson will win at trial.  He's got an unusual claim.  He's incarcerated for murder.  He is, in short, not a litigant with whom a jury will likely find sympathy.

But he'll get to trial.  No small feat.  And who knows?
