On summary judgment, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Western Division, found that security concerns precluded ordering prison officials to take Beasley to an outside synagogue for a Mikvah. This claim was thus dismissed. The district court, however, refused to dismiss another claim raised by Beasley, in which he stated he was being forced to cut his sidelocks and beard in violation of the above authorities. See: Beasley v. Konteh, 433 F.Supp.2d 874 (N.D. Ohio 2006).
