The judge ruled that although Moerman was on parole at the time of his suit, he is still subject to the requirements of the Michigan Prisoner Litigation Reform Act.Okemos attorney Lauren Elster, who represented Susan Lee Clingerman, a former prison counselor at Parnall Correctional Facility near Jackson, said in a Wednesday news release that the Feb.10 ruling is a victory for her client and other defendants in the case, which included the Michigan Department of Corrections and Gov. But Sterlin Mesadieu, an Okemos attorney representing Moerman, said Thursday the case was dismissed only on a technicality.Moerman might appeal the dismissal or he may file a new action in federal court, Mesadieu said. Moerman, of Grand Rapids, alleged in a September lawsuit that Clingerman used him as "a virtual sex slave, demanding sexual gratification at her whim," while he was imprisoned at Parnall on a drug charge in 2014 and receiving counseling for mental illness.
Judge Richard La Flamme ruled that former inmate Steven Moerman of Grand Rapids didn’t comply with technical requirements before filing the lawsuit, including disclosing any other lawsuits he may have filed related to prison conditions and showing that he fully pursued his claims through the prison administrative process.M., who was kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery and raped repeatedly by fighters with the Islamic State, wept as she prepared to leave for Germany in January under a resettlement program.She was in a camp for internally displaced Yazidis near Dohuk, Iraq.REUTERS/Rodi Said (SYRIA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT)A view shows car parts, which according to Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters were used by Islamic State militants to prepare car bombs, at a workshop in Manbij, Aleppo Governorate, Syria, August 17, 2016.REUTERS/Rodi Said A man who fled the Islamic State stronghold of Mosul shows his marriage certificate issued by the Islamic State militants at temporary court at Khazer camp in Iraq, January 18, 2017.
