Prison Litigation & Prisoner’s Rights
The Supreme Court has said that the Eighth Amendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, protects prisoners from being subjected to a serious risk of harm by prison officials who are deliberately indifferent to their safety. The Fourteenth Amendment similarly protects pretrial detainees from being subjected to punishment while they await trial. Common constitutional issues that arise in prisons/jails include:
- Deaths in Custody
- Denial of medical care
- Excessive force
- Conditions of confinement
- Failure to protect
- Strip searches
- First Amendment

Our firm has significant experience handling FOIA, Open Meetings Act, and other government transparency matters. See our successes here.
