Case Summary

On October 4, 1988, the District of Columbia announced that, due to overcrowding of its penal facilities, it would no longer accept newly sentenced prisoners into the District of Columbia Department of Corrections. On October 5, 1988, the United States filed a lawsuit under D.C.Code § 24-425 against the District of Columbia in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

On October 4, 1988, the District of Columbia announced that, due to overcrowding of its penal facilities, it would no longer accept newly sentenced prisoners into the District of Columbia Department of Corrections. On October 5, 1988, the United States filed a lawsuit under D.C.Code § 24-425 against the District of Columbia in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The US asked the district court for a temporary restraining order and for declaratory and injunctive relief, alleging that the District of Columbia could not refuse to accept federal prisoners.

On October 7, 1988, the district court (Judge Thomas F. Hogan) declined to issue a temporary restraining order but issued a preliminary injunction. On November 10, 1988, the district court (Judge Hogan) held that the District was required to accept all newly sentenced adult male prisoners unless acceptance would exceed a specific facility's population capacity as set by court order and that the District was required to immediately undertake all feasible measures to provide space for all adult male prisoners sentenced by the superior court. U.S. v. District of Columbia, 703 F.Supp. 982 (Dist.D.C. 1988). The District appealed.

On March 2, 1990, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg) partially affirmed the district court's decision, holding that the District could refuse to accept new prisoners only if accepting those prisoners would violate the Constitution or judicial orders setting prison population limits, but that the district court's requirement that the District must demonstrate that it had undertaken all feasible measures to provide space for adult male prisoners before receiving judicial authorization to refuse admission of additional inmates exceeded the scope of appropriate remedy. U.S. v. District of Columbia, 897 F.2d 1152 (D.C. Cir. 1990). Defendants appealed on April 6, 1990, and the Court of Appeals affirmed on May 29, 1990.
