August 26, 2021 (1 min read)

Juarez et al v. Asher et al

"For the foregoing reasons, the Court orders Petitioners’ motion for temporary restraining order (dkt. # 324) be GRANTED, in part. The Court ORDERS ICE to test detainees for COVID-19 prior to transfer to NWIPC and to take all reasonable measures to ensure there is no cross-exposure between COVID-19 positive detainees and COVID-19 negative detainees during transport. Further, Respondents are ENJOINED from admitting any detainee into NWIPC that was not transferred in compliance with this order."

[Hats off to NWIRP, ACLU and amici!]
