• The Intercept published an in-depth look into the federal lawsuit recently filed against the Santa Clara County jails. “While there have been a number of legal challenges to the use of solitary confinement over the last few decades, this is the first to take on its use in jails.”

• Solitary Watch’s Victoria Law covered changes made by NYC’s Board of Correction with regards to the use of solitary confinement in the city’s jails. “Under the new rule… if a person has committed a serious assault on jail staff, he or she can be stuck in segregation for up to 60 days without a seven-day waiver;” the seven-day waiver requires that after an individual spends 30 days in segregation, they must be placed in general population for at least seven consecutive days.
