C.B. et al. v. Walnut Grove Correctional Authority, et. al.

October 1, 2012

Children under the supervision of the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) will no longer be housed in a privately run prison or subjected to brutal solitary confinement under the terms of a groundbreaking settlement of a federal class-action lawsuit filed in 2010 by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The lawsuit charged that conditions at the Walnut Grove Youth Correctional Facility, operated by GEO Group, Inc., were unconstitutional.
