Under the terms of the settlement, Arizona prison officials agreed to provide Ashelman with a menu that includes hard boiled eggs, prepackaged breakfast cereal, whole fruits and vegetables, tuna and TV dinner style kosher trays. A rabbi will ensure the meals do not violate Jewish dietary laws.
The Arizona DOC states it has 70 Jewish prisoners in its custody. Presumably, they too are entitled to kosher meals even though the suit was not filed or litigated as a class action suit. The settlement concludes two years of negotiations between Ashelman and the Arizona DOC after the Ninth circuit's remand.
