Georgia: Inmates Sue Corrections Officers

Published: January 9, 2008, NY Times

A group of prisoners filed a class-action lawsuit contending that 
corrections officers have systematically beaten restrained inmates in 
prisons throughout the state, leaving two dead and dozens of others 
injured. The lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court in Valdosta, 
names 25 guards and other corrections officials as culprits in 
routine beatings and torture of inmates. It also claims that they 
subsequently covered up the abuses by inflicting even more beatings 
on prisoners who filed complaints. Most of the incidents reportedly 
took place from 2003 to 2005.
