UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO
September 7, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
FRED COVEY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: B. Lynn Winmill Chief U.S. District Court Judge
MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER
The Court has before it Defendant's Unopposed Motion for Order Allowing Transport of Medical Equipment (Docket No. 14). The Court understands that Defendant relies on certain medical equipment to deal with sleep apnea. The Court also understands that Defendant relies on certain supplies for his vision. Accordingly, the Court finds good cause to allow transportation of said equipment and supplies. However, the Court will not override any Bureau of Prisons or United States Marshal Services rules, regulations, procedures, or processes regarding transportation and housing of inmates.
NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendant's Unopposed Motion for Order Allowing Transport of Medical Equipment (Docket No. 14) shall be, and the same is hereby, GRANTED. The Court will allow transportation of Defendant's equipment and supplies. However, to the extent such transportation conflicts with the rules, regulations, procedures, or processes of the Bureau of Prisons and/or United States Marshal Services, the Court will leave it to their discretion on whether to actually transport or allow Defendant to use the equipment and supplies.
