Post-PLRA enforceable consent decrees

Under the Prison Litigation Reform Act, 18 U.S.C. ยง 3626(a)(1)(A)(a), enacted in 1996, federal courts may enter an enforceable consent decree in prison or jail conditions cases only if "the court finds that such relief is narrowly drawn, extends no further than necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right, and is the least intrusive means necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right." This special collection brings together cases in which the remedies have been ratified under this standard.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
