Moors Settle with Indiana DOC

As a result of more than 15 years of struggle and litigation, the Moorish Science Temple and the Indiana Department of Corrections entered into a settlement agreement stemming from a suit filed by Granville Radford-Bey and Spencer Caldwell-Bey.

On August 30, 1996, the Moors at Plainfield Correctional Facility were allowed to hold their first official Sunday School and Holy Day Services with Bro. R. Love-El opening the meeting. As a result of this settlement, the IDOC has until February, 1997, to implement the terms of this agreement for the entire general population of IDOC where a sufficient number of members have requested services and where other equivalent groups are provided for their religious meetings.

Any prisoners within the IDOC who wish to receive a copy of the settlement, entitled Radford-El v. IDOC, No. IP94-1794-C-T/G, may obtain a copy upon written request accompanied with three stamps for postage by contacting:
