Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In Alan Kress v. Corrections Corp. of America (SD Ind., McKinney), an 8-page opinion, Circuit Judge Bauer writes:

The plaintiffs-appellants, Alan Kress and Randy Carr (“Appellants”), appeal an order from the Indiana district court denying class certification in part and an order granting summary judgment in favor of appellees Corrections Corporation of America, et al. (“CCA”), the owner and operator of the Marion County Correctional Center (“the jail”), located in Indianapolis, Indiana. We affirm. * * *

On appeal, Appellants seek review of the court’s decision to deny class certification of their claim regarding CCA’s reduction of daily pill calls for inmates from three per day to two per day, the court’s order granting summary judgment in favor of CCA, and the district court’s order denying Appellants’ motion to amend the judgment. * * *

For the forgoing reasons, we AFFIRM the judgment of the district court.
