Charles Spangler


Plaintiff Charles Spangler suffers from various physical and mental impairments and was found disabled by a Social Security Administrative Law Judge.  When detained at the Eau Claire County Jail, he claims the jail denied his requests for accommodation resulting from its policy locking detainees out of their cell twice a day for 4 hours at a time. Spangler was allowed to proceed on Fourteenth Amendment claims against jail officials, a doctor, and a nurse at the jail.  Most of his claims have survived summary judgment.  All remaining dates have been stayed, the next step is a scheduling conference to reset the trial date. Included are the amended complaint, the screening order, and order on summary judgment.
