Case Summary

On July 21, 1971, pre-trial detainees at the District of Columbia Jail filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against the mayor of the District of Columbia and jail officials. The complaint sought declaratory and injunctive relief for a long list of violations of the inmates' Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment Constitutional rights. These included overcrowding, inadequate food, denial of access to counsel, inadequate medical services…

On July 21, 1971, pre-trial detainees at the District of Columbia Jail filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against the mayor of the District of Columbia and jail officials. The complaint sought declaratory and injunctive relief for a long list of violations of the inmates' Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment Constitutional rights. These included overcrowding, inadequate food, denial of access to counsel, inadequate medical services, lack of contact with community, and lack of programs to allow inmates to maintain employment prior to trial. Plaintiffs were represented by attorneys of the Public Defender Service of the District of Columbia. In later proceedings, the plaintiffs were represented by the D.C. Prisoners' Legal Services Project, Inc.

In 1975 and 1976, the district court entered several orders enjoining conditions of confinement in the jail On March 21, 1975, the court (Judge William B. Bryant) ordered the jail to reduce overcrowding and implement procedures concerning the release of inmates prior to trial. On November 5, 1975, the Judge Bryant ordered the jail to direct local authorities to inspect the jail for health and safety violation, to provide clean clothing and linens, to provide pre-trial detainees with daily outdoor recreation and monthly medical exams, and to implement a new restraint policy. Campbell v. McGruder, 416 F. Supp. 100 (D.D.C. 1975). Judge Bryant entered another order addressing overcrowding on May 24, 1976. Campbell v. McGruder, 416 F. Supp. 111 (D.D.C. 1976). On March 30, 1978, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed (Judge David L. Bazelon) these orders with respect to the issue of overcrowding and remanded the other orders for clarification. Campbell v. McGruder, 188 U.S. App. D.C. 258 (D.C. Cir. 1978). On remand, the court vacated the part of the previous orders that prohibited the practice of double celling and provided additional security and limits on when this practice occurred. Campbell v. McGruder, 554 F. Supp. 562 (D.D.C. 1982).

On July 13, 1985, the district court prohibited the jail from accepting any inmates until the population of the facility was reduced. In August 22, 1985, the parties reached a Stipulation to Reduce the Population of the DC Jail providing detailed guidelines for population reduction. On March 11, 1987, the court found the District of Columbia in contempt for failure to follow the order and stipulation.

In 1990, Judge Bryant ordered the jail to present a plan to improve health care conditions. On March 4, 1993, after the plaintiffs filed a motion for contempt, the district court ordered the defendants to immediately employ a psychologist and correctional officers trained in mental health care and develop chronic disease clinics within the jail. The defendants failed to comply with portions of this order and the district court (Judge Bryant) appointed a Special Officer. Based on the Special Officer's reports, the court found the defendants in contempt with regards to medical and mental health care. On March 16, 1994, the Special Officer presented a detailed plan to improve these conditions, which the district court ordered the defendants to implement. The court later appointed a Receiver to oversee the implementation of the plan. Over the following years, litigation continued regarding fees and contempt motions. Numerous progress reports were filed with the court.

On July 7, 2003, Judge Bryant granted a motion to dismiss the cases, terminating all injunctive relief pursuant to the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA). The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (per curium) affirmed this decision on March 9, 2004, finding that the plaintiffs failed to demonstrate a current constitutional violation as required by the PLRA. Campbell v. McGruder, 86 Fed. Appx. 426 (D.C. Cir. 2004).
