More about the Ashker v. Governor of California hearing:

On Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 9:30 AM PST, attorneys with the Center for Constitutional Rights will argue (remotely) before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, urging the court to uphold a ruling that California prisons have violated a landmark settlement agreement intended to end indefinite solitary confinement. The district court held that the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) violated the 2015 settlement by maintaining prisoners in levels of isolation that are equal to or even more severe than the isolation they experienced in the Special Housing Units (SHU). You may view the argument via livestream.
