Idaho DOC Responds To Scathing Prison Report

(AP) – The Idaho Department of Correction is telling a federal judge that a scathing report about health care at a Boise-area prison isn’t accurate and doesn’t reflect current conditions. Attorneys for the state filed their response to the report late last week, saying a court-appointed health care expert didn’t do a thorough review at the Idaho State Correctional Institution.  Dr. Marc Stern was appointed by the federal court to examine the care at the prison as part of a long running lawsuit between inmates and the state. U.S. District Judge  Lynn Winmill has said he will use Stern’s findings to help him decide whether to end the lawsuit.  Stern’s report was damning, finding that the medical care was so poor that it amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.
