In Prison Conditions Class Action Complaints of Recreation Cages and Mental Health Review

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 15 – Leroy Peoples sued about prison conditions in New York in 2011. The case grew, into an agreement for better treatment.       

      On November 15, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  New York State complained that the plaintiffs did not follow the requirements set forth in the Agreement for raising issues of a potential breach.

What they allege is, among other things, that "at Southport, DOCCS maintains a consistent practice of moving class members into congregate recreation cages in a way that ensures some class members remain handcuffed."  

 Also, "at Upstate, the SHU orientation manual omits language advising class members of their right to request a mental health review of the double cell assignments." 

 Judge Carter asked for a joint status letter by November 23 and, if the parties do not reach agreement, a briefing schedule.

The case is Peoples v. Annucci et al., 11-cv-2694 (Carter)
