Payne v. Taslimi
Petition for certiorari denied on December 13, 2021
Issue: Whether inmates have a constitutional right to
privacy in their HIV status, as the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 2nd, 3rd, and
6th Circuits have held (subject to legitimate
penological interests), or whether there is no such right, as the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled in this case.
