Thumbs up Prison Legal news win for inmates re: books/mail

Prison Legal News continues its efforts to defend its First Amendment right to communicate with prisoners in the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC). In 1999 the NDOC banned all copies of PLN, claiming the publication constituted “inmate correspondence.” PLN filed suit and was granted a preliminary injunction requiring delivery of PLN subscriptions and mail to Nevada prisoners.

Apparently now we can send books from any vendor not just a specified one and also they no longer have to be pre approved. Inmates in Ely have been able to get many different magazines and most books provided they are no a security risk. Great news...
