PostSubject: Iowa inmates sue to overturn state law banning pornography in prison   Fri Nov 30, 2018 9:12 pm

DES MOINES, Iowa – Fifty-eight Iowa inmates are suing state officials in federal court, seeking $25,000 each in damages and claiming they have been denied a constitutional right to pornography in the state's prison system.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Des Moines, seeks to overturn a new state law that has shut down designated "pornography reading rooms" in Iowa's prisons. The law also prohibits inmates from having nude photos in their cells. The ban includes Playboy magazine, which has long been allowed in the state's nine prisons.
The plaintiffs – who are all inmates at the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility – are led by Allen C. Miles, 70, who is serving a life sentence for the stabbing death of Cheryl Kleinschrodt on March 3, 1982, in Des Moines. The suit claims the law was enacted under the guise of "morality" and blames "religious tyrants" who have no regard for the U.S. Constitution or Declaration of Independence.
The lawsuit also contends that if female correctional officers employed in Iowa's prisons for men can't handle an environment that includes photographic matter featuring female nudity and related matters, "they should find employment elsewhere."
