Prof. Renzo Examines Privatized Prisons
February 10, 2012
Vermont Law School Professor Anthony Renzo recently published an article titled "Rights in Search of Remedies: Supreme Court Sentences Federal Inmates to Vagaries of State Law When Prison Contractors Violate Their Constitutional Rights" in the American Constitutional Society Blog.
In the article, Renzo spotlighted the case of prisoner Richard Lee Pollard, whom the U.S. Supreme Court barred from bringing a damage action in federal court against the individual corporate employees who violated his Eighth Amendment rights when they disregarded a serious medical condition that required treatment.
Renzo's areas of expertise include constitutional and civil liberties litigation.
