Description
 
Roger A. Hanson & Henry W. K. Daley. Section 1983 of the U.S. Code permits prisoners to sue state correctional officials when the conditions of confinement fail to meet constitutional standards of physical security, adequate medical treatment, freedom of religious expression, & so forth. Section 1983 litigation is a major portion of the U.S. District Courtsí civil caseloads; 10% of all civil lawsuits is a Section 1983 lawsuit. This profile of Section 1983 lawsuits was developed from an examination of more than 2,700 cases disposed of in 1992 in 9 states (Alabama, California, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, & Texas).
