Holding Private Contractors Accountable

Just a quick link today to a great editorial on the recent decision by the Tennessee Supreme Court to hold CCA to the same level of public oversight that government agencies are required to meet. The case was brought by Alex Friedman, who works at both Prison Legal News and Private Corrections Institute, seeking documents related to CCA's operations (which they of course didn't want to produce, claiming they were exempt from public records laws as a private company) - check out the links above to their websites!
