Pretrial detainees who had been receiving methadone treatment for drug addiction prior to detention filed a class action against the Sheriff of Cuyahoga County, Ohio, the Deputy in charge of jail operations, and the physician at the jail for denying them methadone treatments while in custody. The district court for the Northern District of Ohio (Chief Judge Frank Battisti) enjoined defendants from preventing pretrial detainees, who immediately prior to their detention were participating in an approved methadone treatment program, from receiving methadone treatment at the jail.
