In Prison Legal News v. Federal Bureau of Prisons, — F.3d. —-, 2019 WL 6797494 (10th Cir. Dec. 13, 2019), the Tenth Circuit affirmed the entry of summary judgment in favor of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) on claims brought by Prison Legal News (PLN) that were rendered moot by BOP’s post-complaint voluntary conduct.

10th Circuit SpotlightBOP’s Regulation of Publications to Inmates

BOP regulations permit distribution of publications to inmates unless a warden rejects them as “detrimental to the [facility’s] security, good order, or discipline.” If the warden rejects any publication, the warden must “promptly notify the inmate in writing, provide the reasons, and identify the objectionable content” and must “provide the publisher with a copy of the rejection notice.”
