A judge won’t rule in the case of a Colorado inmate held in solitary confinement until state prison officials finish a review of how inmates are classified.
A federal trial is set to begin for a Colorado inmate who claims an untreated mental illness has caused the disruptions that have led his being held in solitary confinement for more than 10 years.
Colorado lawmakers have backed away from sweeping new rules on solitary confinement in state prisons.
The percentage of Colorado inmates with mental health problems who were placed in solitary confinement more than doubled between 1999 and 2008, and many were released from prison without having a chance to readjust to human interaction.
