Federal Appeals Court Reinstates Inmate Lawsuit

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday reinstated a lawsuit brought by inmate 32 year old Demetrius Hill against the federal Bureau of Prisons. Hill claims he was transferred from the federal prison in Pine Knot to the federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in retaliation for filing grievances against prison staff. U.S. District Judge Amul Thapar in London dismissed the suit in 2009 as frivolous. A three-judge panel ruled that Hill made a plausible case that his threatened transfer was in retaliation for the complaints. Hill is currently in the Lewisburg facility and is due for release in 2020.
