The Human Rights Defense Center (HRDC) has filed suit in the United States Southern District of Florida to challenge censorship by the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC) and Secretary Mark S. Inch, as well as Jose Colon, warden of the Everglades Correctional Institution. The lawsuit alleges ongoing censorship of three publications sent to prisoners at FDOC prisons, in violation of the First Amendment and the Fourteenth Amendment.
