Mar 21, 2007 Petition for certiorari filed over prisoners’ First Amendment rights
On February 27, 2007, Joseph D. Koutnik’s lawyers filed this petition for the Supreme Court to agree to consider the limits on prisons for censoring inmates’ outgoing mail. In this instance, a prisoner used a swastika as part of criticism of the prison system. I originally blogged about this case on August 14, 2006. Jon Katz.
