This morning, Westword’s Alan Prendergast published an article about the settlement that the University of Denver’s Civil Rights Clinic and CREEC reached with the Colorado Department of Corrections last week. The online article focuses on the history of Colorado State Penitentiary, and how, in light of this lawsuit, the Colorado Department of Corrections has committed to build outdoor recreation areas for high-security prisoners.

Thank you to Westword for writing about our case and bringing more attention to the issue of prisoners’ rights! Read the entirety of Prendergast’s article here: Colorado Supermax Will Build Rec Yards to Settle Prisoners’ Lawsuit.
