"This Just In" piece questioning if the Maine Department of Corrections violated
"This Just In" piece questioning if the Maine Department of Corrections violated the First Amendment's free-speech guarantee in its actions against inmate and human-rights activist Deane Brown. Brown had been denied contact with the news media at the Maine State Prison's Supermax, and was later transferred to Maryland. A suit has been filed against Corrections officials in Maine federal court on Brown's behalf by civil-rights attorney Lynne Williams. Williams says the suit's success could impact Maine correctional policies on access to the press, prisoner treatment, and transfers.
