This assignment is a Discussion Board Post for the JUSTICE 340 “Legal Issues of the Penal System” class and the instructions are as follows: In April 1992, correctional officers found homemade weapons (including two toothbrushes with razor blades attached to them) in an inmates cell. This was the third time the inmate had been found to possess such weapons. After a disciplinary hearing, the inmate was placed in disciplinary segregation. Upon release, he was moved to the prisons highest security level, an Intensive Management Unit (IMU). The inmate filed a Section 1983 action against eighteen prison officials, complaining, in part, that he had no direct access to the prison law library (he did have use of a law library correspondence system that provided legal materials within 24 hours), that photocopy and notary services were too slow and expensive, and that he was denied contact visits with his attorney. Do you think the inmate was successful in his suit?Post must be at least 250 words.
