Lawsuit Will Not Stop Transfer Of Prisoners

Sonora, CA — It appears a recent lawsuit will not affect plans to transfer a small group of inmates out of the Sierra Conservation Center.

An attempt to block Governor Schwarzenegger´s emergency order to transfer prisoners out of state has been denied by a Sacramento judge. A correction officers union filed the lawsuit last month claiming the move was unconstitutional.

Schwarzenegger cited prison overcrowding as the reason for the emergency order.
