Case Summary

In 1987 and 1988, the district court for the District of Nebraska (Judge David L. Piester) consolidated several section 1983 claims against Scotts Bluff County Jail in Gering, Nebraska. The issues presented to the court included conditions of the showers, group recreation, exercise equipment, the ventilation system at the jail, and monitoring inmates' telephone calls.

The Court (Judge David L. Piester) concluded that plaintiffs failed to meet their burden of proof concerning monitoring of telephone calls, shower conditions, and ventilation, and dismissed those actions. However, the Court (Judge David L. Piester) granted plaintiffs relief with respect to group recreation and exercise equipment. Gonzales v. Moreno, 1989 WL 230918 (D. Neb. 1989). The docket for this case is not available on PACER, and therefore our information ends with the last reported decision in 1989.
