Abstract This is a study of the post-judgment history of a recent, significant correctional law case. It is not an examination of the development of correctional law or modern corrections in general, but a narrowly focused examination of how the case of Collins v. Schoonfield affected the institution with which it was concerned, the Baltimore City Jail. More particularly, the study details the process by which the Collins decision was implemented and the factors which influenced that process, the roles of the various persons and institutions involved, the extent to which compliance was achieved, and the overall outcome of the litigation -- its impact.
