Thumbs up 6 inmates on San Quentin Death Row sue over time in solitary

A group of Death Row inmates has sued the state for keeping them in solitary confinement for years or even decades, locked in windowless cells with no phone calls or human contact. It’s treatment, they said, that “amounts to torture.”

The suit was filed in federal court Wednesday by six condemned prisoners, who said they were among about 100 inmates, out of 750 on Death Row, who are kept in isolation in the Adjustment Center at San Quentin State Prison as suspected gang members or associates. The suit said they are held in their cells 21 to 24 hours a day, with no natural light, no access to education or work programs, no phone calls and no contact visits from family members, who must speak to them by phone across a glass barrier.

Beware the law of unintended consequence...it would not surprise me to see this as an impetus to speed up the process and eliminate the prolonged delaying tactics utilized by some on death row...
