Clearinghouse coding in progress

Case Summary

(This summary is temporary, while we research the case.) In October 2019, four people who had spent years in solitary confinement in North Carolina prisons filed a class-action lawsuit challenging the state’s use of the practice as a violation of the state constitution’s ban on cruel or unusual punishment. They were represented by North Carolina Prisoner Legal Services (NCPLS) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of North Carolina.
