UCLA Criminal Justice Law Review
The Cutting Edge of Prison Litigation
- Author(s): Shapiro, David M.
- et al.
This is a brief article about open questions in prisoners’ rights law—that is, legal issues over which the federal courts disagree. These range from issues regarding prisoners’ exercise of religion, to interpretation of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, to the law protecting prisoners’ physical safety. I hope that this article will be helpful to prisoners’ rights lawyers who may consider seeking Supreme Court review of these unresolved questions.
