Abstract RBGG’s Ernest Galvan, Jeffrey Bornstein, and Kara Janssen represent eight named plaintiffs in a class action case filed in December 2018 against Alameda County on behalf of all prisoners, including prisoners with psychiatric disabilities, challenging the unconstitutional use of isolation, denial of constitutionally adequate mental health treatment, and unlawful segregation of prisoners with mental illness into units without access to programming and other basic services at the County’s Santa Rita and Glenn Dyer Jails. Since the filing of the lawsuit the County closed the Glenn Dyer Jail, located in downtown Oakland, in June of 2019 and the case continues regarding conditions at the Santa Rita Jail located in Dublin.
