This is the second in a three-part series about a new class-action lawsuit filed Monday against the Bureau of Prison and its officials who run ADX-Florence, the "Supermax" facility in Colorado that houses some of the nation's most dangerous criminals. The first part focused upon the complaint, which alleges the torture, abuse, and neglect of the prison's mentally ill prisoners. The third installment will focus on some of the legal issues involved in the litigation.
