Lawsuits we are at present trying to help fund
general update September 2018
FUNDS NEEDED AS FFUP MISSION EVOLVES
|source unknown- from years ago/more relavant than ever
We also have filed a suit against abuse and overuse of solitary on behalf of 8 prisoners. This is an experiment in Joinders and we hope it can be a template for future actions.( link to suit here) Another important effort is the crafting of proposed legislation to reduce prison population that all our WI organizations together can promote. An overview of “movement” idea coming here .
WHERE YOUR help is needed now :Right now FFUP has an opportunity to fund two important lawsuits by fine litigators with long term ties to FFUP. Both are working on the overuse of solitary problem. Both have good cases, do win cases and it is an honor that they agree to work with FFUP. One needs filing fees paid and funding help with documents, discovery etc- probably about $1000 in all , with $250 needed ASAP. In the case we want to help fund, the plaintiff is a long term, much abused solitary confinement victim . Details of the case are here and this case will have implications for all those in solitary if won.
