Some 25,000 lawsuits are filed by prisoners against correctional personnel in the US annually. In this work, Ross (criminal justice, East Carolina U.) aims to provide correctional personnel with an understanding of the legal issues and terrain involved in such suits. He first sets the stage with discussions of the general legal landscape and the trends and impacts of prisoner litigation. Next, in chapters reviewing the relevant statutory and case material, he discusses the evolution and restriction of prisoner rights, civil liability and Section 1983 actions for violations of constitutional rights, deliberate indifference and medical care, civil liability and the use of force, civil liability for claims of failure to protect and for prison conditions, liability and wrongful custodial deaths, liability issues surrounding searches and segregation, correctional supervisor liability, and civil liability and the impact on corrections.
