Case Summary

On March 19, 2015, an Illinois prisoner filed this class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against numerous members of the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) tactical team “Orange Crush,” the wardens at Illinois River, Menard, Big Muddy River, and Lawrence Correctional Centers, and other IDOC officials. The plaintiff, represented by Loevy & Loevy and the Uptown People's Law Center, sought injunctive relie…

On March 19, 2015, an Illinois prisoner filed this class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law against numerous members of the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) tactical team “Orange Crush,” the wardens at Illinois River, Menard, Big Muddy River, and Lawrence Correctional Centers, and other IDOC officials. The plaintiff, represented by Loevy & Loevy and the Uptown People's Law Center, sought injunctive relief, compensatory damages, and punitive damages, both for himself individually and for a class of other similarly-situated Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) inmates. Specifically, the named plaintiff claimed that during an April 2014 search of cells at Illinois River Correctional Center, the members of the IDOC tactical team "Orange Crush" beat, abused, and sexually humiliated the plaintiff, destroyed his property, and otherwise inflicted punishment for the sole purpose of causing humiliation and needless pain. The plaintiff further alleged that this conduct at Illinois River was not an aberration. Rather, Orange Crush conducted similarly abusive search procedures at three other IDOC facilities: Menard, Big Muddy River, and Lawrence Correctional Centers. The plaintiff sought to represent a class consisting of all IDOC inmates subjected to “shakedowns” in 2014, as well as all present and future inmates of these four IDOC facilities.

In his complaint, the plaintiff alleged violations of the Eighth Amendment's Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause, when state officials intentionally, wantonly, and/or maliciously inflicted unnecessary physical and emotional pain and suffering on IDOC inmates. In addition, the plaintiff argued that the defendants' strip search procedures violate several provisions of the Prison Rape Elimination Act National Standards, 28 C.F.R. § 115. Lastly, the plaintiff claimed that the defendants acted with the intent or knowledge that there was a high probability that their conduct would inflict severe emotional distress upon the inmates.

The case was assigned to District Judge Staci M. Yandle. It was initially assigned to Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier, but was reassigned to Magistrate Judge Stephen C. Williams on October 16, 2015.

Various defendants moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim on May 29, 2015, and this motion was granted in part and denied in part on January 28, 2016. The court dismissed the portions of the complaint dealing with the Prison Rape Elimination Act, as the Act did not provide for private cause of action. The court determined that the remainder of the complaint was sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss. The court (Magistrate Judge Williams) approved a confidentiality order on July 10, 2017. The plaintiffs then filed a motion to certify the class on October 12, 2018.

As the litigation progressed, the Court granted many motions to consolidate cases by plaintiffs alleging similarly improper stripe search techniques and cell shakedowns. The complete list of docket numbers for the consolidated cases can be found at the end of this summary. In January of 2019, a number of cases were then severed because their facts fell outside of the class perimeters including time frame and location. The severed cases included Turner v. Spiller, et al., 3:16-cv-131-SMY-MAB; Williams v. Mull, et al., 3:15-cv-523-SMY-MAB; and, Chairs v. IDOC, et al., 3:15-cv-1359-SMY-MAB, each in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

On March 26, 2020, Judge Staci Yandle of the Southern District of Illinois issued an order granting Plaintiffs' class certification request. The class consists of all prisoners housed at:

  • Menard Correctional Center between April 4, 2014 and April 16, 2014;
  • Illinois River Correctional Center between April 21, 2014 and April 29, 2014;
  • Big Muddy Correctional Center between May 12, 2014 and May 19, 2014; or
  • Lawrence Lawrence Correctional Center between July 7, 2014 and July 11, 2014

Each of the below cases were filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois and consolidated with this case (Ross v. Gossett) as of February 2020:

  • Clark v. Tact Team, 17-cv-00146-SMY-RJD
  • Knox v. Butler, 17-cv-00494-SMY

Discovery commenced in May 2020. On June 4, 2020, the government filed an appeal of the earlier class certifications to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

While the district court initially denied the government’s request for a stay on May 22, 2020, the government brought a motion to reconsider in view of the Seventh Circuit granting the petition. The parties agreed that formal class notice should not be issued until after the Seventh Circuit ruled on the appeal. However, the district court allowed fact discovery to continue. On October 1, 2020, the district court granted the plaintiffs’ motion for extension of time, setting the deadline for fact discovery on December 15, 2020.

The government moved for a protective order on November 12, 2020. The motion was referred to Magistrate Judge Mark A. Beatty on November 16, 2020, and granted on December 4, 2020. The subject of the motion was 178 Requests to Admit (RTAs) issued to all 22 defendants. Judge Beatty noted the RTAs were not well tailored and came after the defendants had already answered 224 interrogatories, 54 requests to produce, and depositions. Accordingly, Judge Beatty found the RTAs improper.

On May 5, 2022, the Seventh Circuit (Judges Daniel A. Manion, Ilana D. Rovner, and Amy St. Eve) affirmed the district court’s class certification. 33 F.4th 433. The motion to rehear en banc was denied on July 6, 2022. 2022 WL 2500420.

This case is ongoing.

ORDER REFERRING CASE TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE. Plaintiff is a prisoner in the custody of the Illinois Department of Corrections. Represented by counsel, he brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, on behalf of himself and other similarly situated inmates at four prisons, three of which are located in this judicial district. Under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, the Court is required to conduct a prompt threshold review of the complaint. Accepting Plaintiff's allegations as true, the Court finds that Plaintiff has articulated a colorable federal cause of action against Defendants for constitutional, statutory, and supplemental state law claims arising from the Defendants' cell shakedowns, strip searches, use of excessive force, denial of medical care, and related actions at the Illinois River Correctional Center beginning in April 2014, and subsequently at Menard, Big Muddy River, and Lawrence Correctional Centers. Accordingly, pursuant to Local Rule 72.1(a)(2), this action is REFERRED to United States Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier for further pre-trial proceedings. Further, this entire matter shall be REFERRED to United States Magistrate Judge Frazier for disposition, pursuant to Local Rule 72.2(b)(2) and 28 U.S.C. § 636(c), if all parties consent to such a referral. Counsel for Plaintiff may initiate service without further delay. Defendants are ORDERED to timely file an appropriate responsive pleading to the complaint and shall not waive filing a reply pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1997e(g). Signed by Judge Staci M. Yandle on 3/23/2015. (tjk)THIS TEXT ENTRY IS AN ORDER OF THE COURT. NO FURTHER DOCUMENTATION WILL BE MAILED. (Entered: 03/23/2015)
