Good Luck, AP
Honestly - I'm not being sarcastic here. The AP has requested the settlement in the recent case the ACLU and Marlin Riggs won against CCA in Idaho be unsealed. The case alleged violence at the facility was so pervasive that it was called "Gladiator School," and that the prison intentionally denied medical care to assaulted prisoners in order to cover up the extent of the violence. The AP says the case raises profound questions of public concern, which I certainly agree with. So, I wish you the best of luck in getting that settlement unsealed; I'd love to see what it says, and how much CCA had to pay.
