It’s Dawson State Jail again. Called “the worst jail in the state” and much, much worse, Dawson is run by Corrections Corporation of America; CCA usually responds to document and discovery requests, but this time the Texas representatives ignored the information requests by Prison Legal News and Texas Civil Rights Project. So CCA is being sued for the information. Behind this suit is the larger one, a suit against Dawson and its controllers, for “unconscionable and unconstitutional conditions.” Plaintiffs allege seven deaths and lack of medical care. The Texas legislature is currently debating whether to sell the jail, or to keep it and even buy two more, despite reductions in total state inmates.
