How Florida lost its prison health care watchdog agency

How Florida lost its prison health care watchdog agency

In January 2007, a woman was diagnosed with vulvar cancer while she was held in a Florida jail. The doctors had scheduled a follow-up evaluation, but she did not receive treatment before she was transfered to Broward Correctional Institution. # That June, a cancer specialist recommended a consultation with a gynecological oncologist “ASAP,” according to a report by the Correctional Medical Authority.

Judge rules Florida prison privatization plan unconstitutional (Updated)

Judge rules Florida prison privatization plan unconstitutional (Updated)

Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford ruled today that the process by which the Florida Legislature pushed through a plan to privatize prisons in 18 counties was unconstitutional, writing that the Department of Corrections “proceeded without statutory authority and contrary to statutory authority” by implementing the plan. The lawsuit was filed by the Police Benevolent Association, a union that represents corrections officers and prison guards. The Florida Independent’s Travis Pillow outlined the argument behind the union’s lawsuit last month: The union has long questioned the financial benefits of privatization and the calculus behind the 7 percent savings mandated by Florida statutes.
