Detainees Reopen Baltimore Jail Lawsuit Over Dangers to Health and Safety

BALTIMORE, MD - The American Civil Liberties Union, the Law Offices of Elizabeth Alexander, and the Public Justice Center today filed a motion to reopen Duvall v. Hogan in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, as inhumane conditions remain at the Baltimore City Detention Center despite a 2009 settlement and court orders dating back to 1993. The jail endangers the health and safety of detainees by failing to provide adequate medical and mental health care and having a crumbling, vermin-infested infrastructure.
