Judge Blocks Shady Deal w/ Emerald
Emerald Corrections Corporation is a small player in the market, dealing mostly in the south. In Louisiana, a judge just blocked a local sheriff from turning over operations of his jail to the company, because "it makes absolutely no sense." The move would eliminate many local jobs and jeopardize the county's ability to provide quality law enforcement services, according to the judge.
