US/Pacific Judges Order Release Of Thousands Of Inmates SAN FRANCISCO (AP)
A special panel of federal judges tentatively ruled Monday that California must release tens of thousands of inmates to relieve overcrowding. The judges said no other solution will improve conditions so poor that inmates die regularly of suicides or lack of proper care.
Since this time, Attorney General Brown has appealed the ruling. See "Brown Calls on Court to Terminate Prison Receivership" on YouTube.
