On February 25, 2002, an inmate at the Jefferson County Jail in Port Hadlock, Washington, brought a class action lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington against Jefferson County and corrections officials alleging inadequate health care, access to courts, staffing and unsanitary conditions. The inmates were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union. On August 22, 2002, the court certified the class as all current or future persons incarcerated in the Jefferson County Jail. The parties entered into a settlement agreement in which the defendants agreed to seek mental health accreditation for the jail, maintain the temperature in the jail within a mandated range, ensure inmates receive adequate hygiene supplies, offer recreation to inmates at least one hour per day seven days per week, fix and maintain the plumbing, provide personal storage for each inmate, prepare fire preparedness plans, maintain a log for use of the crisis cell and use of force, revise grievance and medical request forms, and prohibit jail staff from reading inmate mail. On January 27, 2004, after a fairness hearing the court (Judge Ronald Leighton) approved the settlement agreement and dismissed the case.
