This is the third in a three-part series about a new class-action lawsuit filed Monday against the Bureau of Prison and the officials who run ADX-Florence, the "Supermax" facility that houses some of the nation's most dangerous criminals.

The second part focused upon the plaintiffs and other prisoners named in the lawsuit.
