This case concerns systemic sexual abuse at the federal prison in Dublin, California. In 2022, six employees (including the warden and the chaplain) were arrested for sexually abusing women in custody. Two more guards were later arrested and seven of eight employees were convicted or had plead guilty as of March 3, 2024.

On August 16, 2023, the California Coalition for Women Prisoners filed a lawsuit against the United States of America Federal Bureau of Prisons in the United States District Court, Northern District of California, Oakland Division. Represented by Rights Behind Bars, Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP, and the California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice, the plaintiffs sought injunctive relief on behalf of a putative class of people incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institute (“FCI”) Dublin, alleging that all current and future people incarcerated there face continuing harm as a result of the failure to protect the prisoners from sexual abuse by staff. Individual prisoners also sued for monetary damages under the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act, 22 U.S.C. § 7102, and under Bivens actions for federal constitutional violations. Plaintiffs claimed that the Bureau of Prisons has been aware of allegations of sexual abuse by staff at FCI Dublin for decades, and yet had failed to investigate or prevent misconduct. Plaintiffs also alleged that prison staff failed to keep reports of sexual abuse confidential and retaliated against reporters by placing them in solitary confinement, initiating unjustified strip and cell searches, and transferring them to facilities far from support networks. Plaintiffs assert that the sexual abuse and systematic failure to prevent harm violate the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment and the right to personal security found in the Fifth Amendment’s substantive Due Process guarantees. In the complaint, plaintiffs also noted that FCI Dublin had previously been the subject of investigation by a Department of Justice working group and a Senate subcommittee, and that seven former FCI Dublin officers were convicted or pled guilty to criminal sexual abuse charges. 

On October 26, 2023, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers set a December hearing date for the plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction. Defendants filed their response to the motion for preliminary injunction on November 13, 2024, claiming the plaintiffs did not adequately assert constitutional violations. Defendants also argued that plaintiffs did not satisfy the imminence and harm requirements for preliminary injunctions because FCI Dublin no longer employed the “bad actors,” had improved prison conditions, and did not pose a risk of future harm under new leadership. 

The court did not issue a preliminary injunction on December 11. On December 12, Judge Gonzalez Rogers issued a case management and pretrial order. The order stayed all cases for individual damages until July 19, 2024. The request for injunctive relief was not stayed, and an evidentiary hearing was set for January 2024. 

The evidentiary hearing lasted several days—plaintiffs and defendants testified between Wednesday, January 3 and Tuesday, January 9, 2024. At the conclusion of the hearing, the court ordered the parties to address several discovery issues and to propose a briefing schedule. On January 22, the court granted a stipulated protective order agreed to by plaintiffs, which also required defendants to turn over exhibits that were submitted in camera during the evidentiary hearing. 

Plaintiffs submitted their post-evidentiary hearing brief arguing for a preliminary injunction requiring court-supervised monitoring on February 2, 2024. Plaintiffs' underscored the necessity of appointing a Special Master given defendants' failure to implement the Moss Group and DOJ Task Force's recommendations and the defendants' retaliation prior to and after the hearing. Plaintiffs also filed an amended complaint on February 9, 2024.

On February 15, 2024, the court issued an order to show cause for why defendants shouldn't be held in contempt or sanctioned for failure to follow the court's order to not transfer any witnesses. Shortly before visiting FCI Dublin, the Judge Rogers received news that one of the incarcerated individuals who testified during the evidentiary hearing to sexual abuse at the prison was placed in a Secure Housing Unit (SHU) and then transferred to a separate prison in Los Angeles, contradicting the court's December 20, 2023 order to not transfer any witnesses. According to the incarcerated individual (in documents submitted to the court later that month), forms of retaliatory conduct included changing her status from out-custody to in-custody (which would prevent her from being allowed to visit her elderly parents in the hospital or attend their funeral). In the SHU, she was allegedly denied basic hygiene items and embarked on a hunger strike before she was transferred on February 6, 2024.

The court issued another order on February 16, 2024 following Judge Rogers' visit to FCI Dublin. During the visit, the judge spoke to over 100 incarcerated individuals and found that some conditions required immediate attention for falling well below the standard of care required of the Bureau of Prisons. First, the court ordered that by the end of February, defendants must fix all showers (only four of eights were working in one wing and had only lukewarm water). Defendants were also ordered to have a contractor inspect the facility for natural gas leaks, black mold, and asbestos by February 23, 2024. Third, defendants were ordered to distribute second blankets to people incarcerated in facilities without heat. The final issue was addressed in a separate attachment under seal.

Defendants filed their opposition to plaintiffs' preliminary injunction motion on February 16, 2024. In their response to the court's February 15, 2024 order, defendants claimed that they had misunderstood the court's order not to transfer witnesses as limited to the lead-up to the evidentiary hearing; that the transfer was made for legitimate safety and security concerns; and that plaintiffs did not object to the transfer.

Plaintiffs filed a response to defendants' defense of the transfer on February 19, 2024. In their response, plaintiffs asserted that they were not provided with the full facts surrounding the transfer of the incarcerated individual or given access to her until after the transfer. Plaintiffs argued that the placement in the Secure Housing Unit and transfer was initiated by one of the officers against whom she testified and that defendants violated other procedural requirements consistent with prior allegations of retaliation. A hearing regarding the order was set by the court for February 27, 2024.

During the hearing, the court indicated a strong likelihood of appointing a special master to investigate claims. The Federal Bureau of Investigations sent agents to FCI Dublin on the morning of March 11, 2024. Later that day, the Bureau of Prisons notified the court that it had replaced executive employees (the Acting Warden, an Associate Warden, the Satellite Camp Administrator, and the Acting Captain). BOP noted that the changes were made pursuant to the transfer of one of the witnesses. 

On March 15, 2024, the court granted plaintiffs' motion for class certification and their motion for preliminary injunction in part. The court also appointed a special master, in keeping with plaintiffs' requests, to address the ongoing retaliation issues. The court certified plaintiffs' requested class of "[a]ll people who are now, or will be in the future, incarcerated at FCI Dublin and subject to FCI Dublin's uniform policies, customs, and practices concerning sexual assault, including those policies, customs, and practices related to care in the aftermath of an assault and protection from retaliation for reporting an assault," finding the typical elements of numerosity, commonality, typicality, and adequacy satisfied. The court analyzed plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction under the requirements of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (RPLA), including that the injunction be narrowly drawn and set to expire after 90 days unless the court finds that a permanent injunction is required. While the court acknowledged BOP's efforts to install more cameras and a pilot phone program to address the risk of sexual misconduct, those changes were insufficient to counter FCI Dublin's deliberate indifference to plaintiffs' risk of sexual abuse and inadequate medical and mental health services for survivors. The court found BOP's response to allegations of sexual assault by staff woefully insufficient and the health services understaffed, despite the introduction of a rape crisis center. The court also found that plaintiffs' First Amendment claim was likely to succeed on the merits due to FCI Dublin's failure to address the retaliatory environment. The court denied plaintiffs' requests for court monitoring of communication, fixing the privacy screens of computer, and the return of non-contraband items seized from individuals' cells during searches. 2024 WL 1290766. 

The court appointed a Special Master on April 5, 2024. In addition to the Special Master, the court appointed an additional four individuals to assist the Special Master, including a nurse consultant and a data and statistical analysis expert. 

On April 15, 2024, BOP announced in a statement that FCI Dublin was not meeting standards and the prison's forthcoming closure, a highly unusual announcement. The court held a sealed status conference on April 23, 2024, concerning the winding down of operations at FCI Dublin. According to an order issued by the court on May 7, 2024, the closure announcement was made without informing the court and that the Special Master expressed concerns with the BOP's immediate initiation of transferring incarcerated persons without consideration of medical clearance or eligibility for community placements. The court therefore ordered all transportation of incarcerated people halted with closure proceedings to be supervised by the court. The court also ordered: the provision of a monthly staffing report to the court and Special Master from each facility to which FCI Dublin class members were transferred; maintenance of a tracking roster created for the class members; and other reporting measures.  

On May 9, 2024, a named transgender individual incarcerated in BOP facilities in Arizona and Pennsylvania filed a pro se motion to intervene. The would-be intervenor sought to intervene as someone who had also suffered from systemic sexual abuse. 

In the meantime, preparations for a settlement conference before Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero were made. 

On June 11, 2024, the ACLU of Northern California, the Appeal, Victoria Law, and the First Amendment Coalition, represented by the ACLU and Victoria Law, filed a motion to intervene for the purpose of unsealing court records and a motion to unseal documents. Organizational intervenors sought to unseal documents shedding light on BOP's conduct and legal consequences, and deliberately sought to avoid releasing sensitive or private information about class members or others incarcerated at FCI Dublin. The BOP opposed the intervention of both the named would-be intervenor and would-be organizational intervenors on June 13, 2024.

This case is ongoing.
