Inmate Transfer Stalled In Ongoing Legal Battle


The state has temporarily halted transfers of inmates out of the Tamms supermax prison in Southern Illinois, while a legal battle continues over Governor Pat Quinn’s plan to close the prison.

 

State officials agreed to halt the transfers in order to give AFSCME time to respond to a state motion to dismiss the union’s lawsuit.

 

In the meantime, the state and the union will meet with an arbitrator next week in an attempt to resolve safety concerns about the inmate transfer.

 

AFSCME says moving dangerous felons out of Tamms into other prisons will just add to overcrowding in those other facilities, and put inmates and prison workers at risk.
