Ind. Courts - More on: "Inmates' access to law files at issue"
A potential class-action lawsuit was filed against Allen County Sheriff David Gladieux in federal court, accusing the jail of failing to provide access to legal research material.The ILB has obtained a copy of the 10-page complaint, Hodgin v. Gladieux, filed Jan. 29, 2016 in ND Ind., Fort Wayne Division.
Filed late Friday by Patrick Hodgin, an inmate awaiting sentencing on a charge related to the dumping of methamphetamine waste, the lawsuit accuses the sheriff of violating both the U.S. and Indiana constitutions.
Through his attorney David Frank, Hodgin is seeking class-action status.
