$1 Verdict in BOP Retaliation Case

While imprisoned at the federal lockdown prison in Marion, Illinois,
prisoner Joseph Dougherty began criticizing the conditions of confinement.
Prison officials then transferred him and confiscated a $100 postal money
order. He filed suit alleging retaliation. A jury entered a verdict on
Dougherty's behalf on January 4, 1996, finding he was retaliated against,
but only awarded him $1. See: Dougherty v. Ellet, USDC, SD IL., Case No.
