Private Idaho Prison Wants Lawsuit Halted

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Private prison company Corrections Corporation of America is asking a federal judge to put an Idaho lawsuit on hold while an FBI investigation into the company is underway. In a motion filed in Boise’s U.S. District Court earlier this week, CCA’s attorney Kirtlan Naylor said the company wants to stave off turning over any documents or taking part in any depositions until the federal fraud investigation ends. CCA has operated the Idaho Correctional Center for more than a decade. In 2012, eight inmates at the facility sued, contending poor management and chronic understaffing led to an attack in which they were jumped, stabbed and beaten by a prison gang. Last week the FBI notified state agencies that it was investigating whether CCA officials committed fraud or any related crimes.
