On March 11, 1982, prisoners at the Marin County Jail filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of California for the County of Marin against the County Sheriff, challenging their conditions of confinement. The case was disposed of before trial on July 30 of the same year.

Our knowledge of this case is limited to its mention in Wayne N. Welsh, Counties in Court: Jail Overcrowding and Court-Ordered Reform (1995), and a limited register of actions; these sources suggest it included a population cap. As of the time of this writing, we have no further information on the case.
