Friday Roundup

leave a comment »

It’s been over a week since I’ve done a Friday Roundup and the news has piled up:

Litigation, etc.

  • Inmate who suffered brain trauma when another inmate savagely beat him in Pennsylvania’s Lackawanna County Jail files federal lawsuit, alleging guards stood by while the beating occurred.
  • Federal report blasts Louisiana’s Terrebonne Parish juvenile jail for violating youth’s constitutional rights.
  • Supreme Court to Ninth Circuit: Stop reviewing state prisoners’ parole hearings.
  • An interesting interview with David Fathi of the ACLU’s National Prison Project, touching on a range of ACLU prisoners’ rights litigation.

Legislation, etc.

Now for the Bad News
