Abstract In January 2005, a federal class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of all prisoners booked into the Santa Fe County Jail when it was run by Management and Training Corp. The lawsuit alleged that starting in January 2002, prisoners booked into the facility were illegally strip-searched and were thus deprived of their constitutional rights. As part of the settlement, MTC agreed to pay $8 million to about 13,000 people.
