CASE ENTRY

Prison Legal News v. Secretary

Florida prison officials bar inmates from receiving magazine that, in addition to covering criminal justice issues, publishes ads advertising services (like three-way calling, pen-pal solicitations, and people locators) that inmates use to conduct criminal activities. A First Amendment violation? The Eleventh Circuit, citing Oscar Wilde, says no. (For some more fun, Ctrl+F for “la-la-land.” Or have a gander at Footnote 11.)
