Abstract NIPNLG, the ACLU of San Diego, the ACLU, and Ropes & Gray, LLP filed a class-action lawsuit in the US District Court for the Southern District of California on behalf of all persons detained pretrial and post-conviction in US Marshals Service custody at the Otay Mesa Detention Center--a facility that holds many who are being prosecuted only for illegal entry or reentry. The lawsuit demands the immediate release of people age 45 or above and those with underlying medical conditions that place them at a heightened risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19, and a drastic reduction in the number of people in the facility for the duration of the pandemic.
