This is the ninth edition of a text that reviews the federal case law concerning the constitutional rights of prisoners in the United States. For the new edition, Palmer (of counsel, Yavitch & Palmer, Columbus, Ohio) has brought the material up to date to the end of the 2008-2009 term of the US Supreme Court and includes treatment of recent decisions concerning the burden of proof on prisoners pleading exhaustion of administrative remedies under the Prison Litigation Reform Act, limitations of the Federal Tort Claims Act involving prisoner claims of unlawful detention of property, and the authority of school officials to conduct warrantless strip searches of juveniles. He also includes new material on the Americans with Disabilities Act and on the administrative law process applicable to correctional systems. Issues concerning the treatment of accused terrorists under US control but outside the US and issues of international treaties banning torture and their application to American prisons, both covered in the last edition, are not discussed in this new edition, partly because of a lack of domestic case law.
