District Court Issues Order After Prison Legal News Censorship Trial

The District Court has issued an Order from the bench trial.  Unfortunately, the Court concluded that PLN’s First Amendment rights had not been violated.  However, the Court held that PLN’s Due Process rights had been repeatedly violated because the FDOC failed to provide timely and adequate notice to PLN when its magazine was censored.  The Court issued an injunction requiring the FDOC provide the required notice so that PLN could have the opportunity to appeal the censorship of its magazine.  PLN has appealed the First Amendment ruling to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
