Dart maintains the civil rights attorneys and detainees who filed a lawsuit against him and the jail are playing “constitutional whack-a-mole.”
Secretly aimed at achieving the wholesale release of jail prisoners.
Jail officials say they are “meeting CDC guidelines” and “remain in complete compliance with the narrow preliminary injunction” that was issued by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly.
Sarah Grady, an attorney representing the inmates who filed the lawsuit released a statement.
“We are confident that the Court’s preliminary injunction order will be affirmed on appeal. We also find it unfortunate that the Sheriff is spending limited resources on fighting the injunction, rather than taking care to comply with the order, which is designed to protect detainees’ lives.”
