from Reuters via U.S. News & World Report
The American Civil Liberties Union sued the Nebraska state prison system to remedy what it says is overcrowding that has fueled riots, assaults and created unconstitutional conditions for prisoners. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Lincoln, Nebraska, on behalf of prisoners, asks a federal judge to order the state to fix problems including the overuse of solitary confinement and neglect of medical, disability and mental health needs.
