Representative Matters

  • Successfully represented an inmate on an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in a suit challenging, among other things, a prison policy that required all isolation inmates to be strip searched every eight hours, regardless of whether they had any opportunity to obtain contraband. In a precedential decision, the unanimous panel held that “the particular search policy . . . is not reasonably related to [the prison’s] legitimate interests in detecting and deterring contraband, particularly given the significant intrusiveness of the thrice-daily visual body-cavity searches.
