In a landmark ruling, Justice Perell granted summary judgment in favour of the class, awarding $20 million in aggregate damages.
This award is to be distributed directly to class members who were involuntarily subjected to administrative segregation for 15 consecutive days or more in a Federal prison.
Individual claims for additional damages will be adjudicated at a later date.
