Today the ACLU of Nebraska and our legal partners filed a motion for class certification in our lawsuit against the Dept. of Correctional Services asserting that extreme overcrowding in Nebraska prisons has led to violations of the constitutional rights of prisoners.
ACLU lawyers and advocates are among the nation's leading experts on civil liberties and constitutional freedoms. They are regularly sought out by leading broadcast, print and online media to lend an essential voice to the conversation about some of the most important issues facing the nation.
