This class-action lawsuit was filed on January 12, 2017, in the United States District Court For The Middle District Of Tennessee. The plaintiffs and the proposed class was incarcerated in the Tennessee Department of Corrections (“TDOC”) and housed at Trousdale Turner Correctional Facility in Hartsville, TN, a private prison owned and operated by CoreCivic. The class is defined as persons with insulin-dependent diabetes (Type 1 or insulin dependent Type 2) who were, who had been, or who in the future would become, housed at Trousdale Turner correctional facility. The plaintiffs were represented by private council, and the case was been assigned to District Judge Eli J. Richardson.

The named defendants are CoreCivic, TDOC, and the Commissioner of TDOC. The plaintiffs alleged that defendants had violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and Rehabilitation Act by failing to provide accommodations and discriminating on the basis of disability resulting in physical injury. They also alleged that defendants had demonstrated deliberate indifference to the serious medical needs of the class resulting in physical injury in violation of the Eighth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment Substantive Due Process.

Specifically, the complaint alleged that as a result of CoreCivic's policy and practice of understaffing, defendants were often unable to provide persons with insulin-dependent diabetes with access to basic diabetes care, including blood sugar checks and insulin administration coordinated with regular mealtimes. They sought permanent injunctive relief, court orders to transfer those with insulin-dependent diabetes out of the Trousdale prison and to cease assigning these prisoners to that facility, and court orders to change training and institutional policy regarding diabetes care.

The court certified the class on Oct 3, 2018 (2018 WL 4776081). That same day, the court also dismissed the defendants' motions to dismiss and for summary judgment and denied the American Diabetes Association's motion to intervene (2018 WL 4800836 and 2018 WL 4799770, respectively). The parties entered a joint motion for class settlement on May 16, 2019, which was subsequently granted on May 23, 2019.

On July 25, 2019, Judge Richardson entered judgment against CoreCivic requiring that they provide access to blood sugar checks and insulin administration in coordination with regular mealtimes, as well as procedural changes to accommodate inmates with insulin-dependent diabetes. The judgment also requires training changes, as well as a payment of $99,950.00 to the plaintiff's counsel for attorneys fees. The court dismissed all claims against TDOC and its commissioner with prejudice. The settlement agreement was to be in force for two years. The case is ongoing for the purposes of enforcement.
