CASE ENTRY

Williams v. Shah

Illinois corrections officials institute a “brunch” program, a bougie euphemism for serving prisoners two meals a day instead of three. Prisoner sues, claiming that the program gave him too few calories. Which, says the Seventh Circuit, the undisputed record rebuts. The program’s designer submitted an affidavit that the two-meal brunch menu supplied the same number of daily calories as the regular three-meal menu.
