Brown fails to produce prison plan, seeks end of court control
from Los Angeles Times
Gov. Jerry Brown contends California no longer needs to reduce overcrowding in the state's prisons. Federal judges had given the state a deadline to file plans showing how California would meet federal caps on prison populations. Instead, the governor's lawyers filed a motion asking the judges to lift those caps. "The overcrowding and health care conditions cited by this court to support its population reduction order are now a distant memory," the state's lawyers contend.
