Prisoners on hunger strike could be force-fed under order
from Los Angeles Times
California prison officials have obtained a federal court order to allow force feeding and other steps to keep hunger strikers alive, including those who have declared that they do not want such intervention. The state argued in a filing to U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson that there is a "risk that inmates may be or have been coerced into participating in the hunger strike" and signed such declarations against their will.
