Edward Hernandez sued the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC), claiming that its policy of giving only annual reviews to prisoners in segregation violated due process. The Ninth Circuit remanded the case for further factual development. The court noted, however, that annual reviews are insufficient. Questions remained, though, concerning whether debriefing or stepdown programs provided adequate alternatives to more frequent than annual reviews. See: Hernandez v. Schriro, 357 Fed.Appx. 747 (9th Cir. 2009).
