Jail in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana
This class action in federal court in Louisiana is for violations of the 14th Amendment protections for prisoners, and the conditions under which detainees are held in the jail of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. The plaintiffs – who were pre-trial detainees and not convicted of any crime – were held in a filthy, cramped holding cell that was 10 feet by 20 feet and filled with up to 24 people. Plaintiffs were held in conditions that were cruel and unusual, denied access to basic hygiene, forced to sleep on filthy concrete floors, often without blankets, and not allowed space or time for any exercise. Furthermore, some detainees were held in these conditions for 16 days, while state law mandates that inmates be moved into regular housing after 48 hours.
