Litigation Status Report Available

The National Prison Project of the ACLU has issued its latest, updated status report on state prisons and the courts. The report gives a detailed listing, by state, indicating which prisons and prison systems are under court order or consent decrees to limit their populations or otherwise improve their conditions of confinement. Only three states have never been involved in major litigation challenging overcrowding or prison conditions.

The report gives case citations (many of these cases have been going up and down the courts for, literally, decades) and summaries of the class action suits filed and what their current status is. This report is invaluable for anyone involved in major institutional reform litigation as well as anyone interested in the scope of this type of litigation over the years. The 18 page report is highly informative and available from the NPP (address on page 20) for $5 post paid.
