Case Summary

On September 16, 2015, the Florida Justice Institute filed this class action lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on behalf of 2,000 inmates in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida. The complaint alleged that the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC), and their medical services contractor Corizon LLC, had denied hernia surgeries to prisoners to save money, in violation of the Eighth Amendment.

On September 16, 2015, the Florida Justice Institute filed this class action lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on behalf of 2,000 inmates in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida. The complaint alleged that the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC), and their medical services contractor Corizon LLC, had denied hernia surgeries to prisoners to save money, in violation of the Eighth Amendment. The plaintiffs sought both a preliminary and permanent injunction requiring the defendants to immediately provide hernia surgery to all FDOC prisoners recommended for surgery. For prisoners who have not seen a surgeon, the plaintiffs requested that they be seen by a surgeon. The plaintiffs also requested monetary damages and attorneys' fees and costs. The case was assigned to Judge Robert L. Hinkle.

On December 24, 2015, the plaintiffs moved to certify a class defined as "all current and future prisoners in the custody of FDOC who have presented, or will present, with a symptomatic hernia to prison staff." The plaintiffs also moved for certification of two subclasses. These were a surgery recommendation subclass, defined as "all class members who have received, or will in the future receive, a recommendation from a surgeon that they receive surgery" and a no consult subclass, consisting of "all class members who have not seen a surgeon, or will be denied a visit to a surgeon in the future, for a surgical consultation."

On January 6, 2016, the plaintiffs moved for preliminary injunction, asking the court to order the defendants to perform those hernia surgeries for those prisoners who have already received a recommendation. The plaintiffs also sought an order requiring the defendants to send class members to an independent surgeon for a surgical consultation, and then to abide by the surgeon's recommendation.

On May 2, 2016, the plaintiffs and the defendants participated in settlement mediation and reached a settlement. On September 19, 2016, the plaintiffs and defendants filed a joint motion asking the court to conditionally certify two classes and to preliminarily approve the class settlement.

On September 23, 2016, Judge Hinkle preliminarily approved the consent order and certified two classes. The injunctive class was defined as "[a]ll current and future prisoners in FDOC custody who, after September 16, 2011, have been diagnosed, or will be diagnosed, with a hernia by a qualified medical provider." The damages class was defined as "[a]ll past and current prisoners in FDOC custody who were diagnosed with and/or treated for a hernia between September 8, 2013, and May 31, 2016, at an FDOC facility while Corizon was the medical provider for that FDOC facility." As part of the agreement, the defendants agreed to pay about $2.1 million to settle this lawsuit: FDOC would pay $150,000 and Corizon would pay $1,950,000. The consent order also required FDOC to amend its health care policy on hernias to ensure that prisoners are referred to doctors for consultations and receive the recommended care. The FDOC would adopt a new Health Service Bulletin dealing with hernias, provide notice to medical staff and comply with the new policy.

On March 27, 2017, the plaintiffs moved for final approval of the class action settlement. In response, the court required that certain state and federal governmental officials be given notice and 100 days to file any objection prior to final approval in compliance with the Class Action Fairness Act. After all objections had been fully considered, Judge Hinkle ruled that none provided the basis to disapprove or alter the agreement. The court granted final approval of the class action settlement on September 11, 2017. 2017 WL 8780863.

On November 16, 2017, the parties jointly moved to dismiss with prejudice the defendant Corizon. The court granted it and removed Corizon from the action. On December 19, 2017, a class member filed a notice of a breach of the agreement, claiming that the defendants were not providing inmates hernia exams. Judge Hinkle treated this notice as a motion for relief and denied it without prejudice on December 31, 2017.

On January 2, 2018, another class member filed a notice of their appeal of the order granting final approval to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Later, the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed his appeal.

On April 25, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a motion to enforce the consent order (from September 23, 2016), and the defendants answered on May 16, 2019. Oral argument on the motion was held on June 13, 2019. On August 15, 2019, the parties reached a joint agreement, and the court issued an order for the parties to comply. FDOC agreed to provide more complete and frequent reports. The parties also agreed that a delay of more than four months between diagnosis and surgical consult or between surgical consult and surgery would be considered an "undue delay." The motion to enforce was dismissed without prejudice as moot.

There have been repeated efforts to reopen the case by prisoners who were not included within the class definition, but the court has denied these. As of October 11, 2020, this case is ongoing for monitoring and enforcement purposes.
