This is an action by two Jewish prisoners who were at a facility that provided both a kosher diet and services. The prisoners were transferred to another institution with a kitchen the Indiana Department of Corrections (DOC) characterizes as kosher so they could continue their kosher diets. However, the DOC has not allowed any of the Jewish prisoners to meet for worship or study at the new institution. After services were finally initiated the case was fully briefed on the question of damages. The district court entered a decision against the plantiffs and the matter is being appealed.
