 Full Description: 
Prinsoners with disabilities have been writing to activist Jean Stewart for years. The stories of their treatment are disturbing - attendant services denied, pressure sores neglected, equipment refused- and the basis for their rights is tenuous. A federal judge ruled that CA prisons must comply with the ADA and the Rehab Act of 1973 - and some institutions have complied- but prisons across the country have held themselves to be exempt from the ADA. After a barrage of complaints the Supreme Court will decide if disability rights belong behind bars.
