Inmate's claim of "deliberate indifference" by psychologist to his medical needs was defeated by failure to exhaust administrative remedies

In Lee v. Willey, the incarcerated plaintiff attempted to sue a Department of Corrections psychologist, claiming that the defendant violated his 8th Amendment rights through deliberate indifference to his medical needs.  The Court held that since Lee had not exhausted his potential administrative remedies under the Prison Litigation Reform Act, he lacked the standing to sue.  Summary disposition of his claim was affirmed.
