[UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Smith and Benton, Circuit Judges] Prisoner case - Prisoner civil rights. Defendant failed to meet his burden of showing that plaintiff's failure to exhaust his administrative remedies was unexcused as defendant offered nothing to counter plaintiff's testimony concerning the language barrier he faced because he only spoke Spanish, the absence of a Spanish version of the jail rules, his lack of any writing materials and the fact that he only learned of the grievance procedure after it was too late to file a grievance regarding the incident in question; the district court erred in determining that there was no jury issue as to whether defendant used excessive force in an incident in which plaintiff alleged he was injured; remanded for further proceedings.151785U.pdf 10/08/2015 Robert Orlick v.
