Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioners in this case.

Issue: Whether the Prison Litigation Reform Act’s tailoring requirement - which provides that before a district court may order prospective relief with respect to prison conditions, it must find “that such relief is narrowly drawn, extends no further than necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right, and is the least intrusive means necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right,” 18 U.S.C. § 3626(a)(1)(A) - prohibits a district court from ordering a prison to maintain a maximum heat index to remedy a constitutional violation caused by heat.
