Balla v. Idaho State Board of Corrections.



In a class action by inmates of state correctional institutions, the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho found violations of the Eighth Amendment in the failure to provide inmates with minimally adequate food, clothing, medical care, and safety. The court ordered special diets for medically infirm prisoners, uniform quality and quantity of food regardless of classification, sufficient clothing to protect inmates from the cold, 24-hour emergency medical care, a mental health treatment program, measures to assure personal safety, and a new classification system for the segregation of maximum and minimum security prisoners.
