Orleans Parish Prison Update – In legal papers filed late last week by the American Civil Liberties Union, 45 men and women formerly detained at Orleans Parish Prison recount disturbing details of being abandoned without food or water and abused by guards after Hurricane Katrina struck.

The ACLU said that the scores of testimonials it has obtained from prisoners contradict public statements made by Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman that the prisoners had food and water and that the evacuation went as planned.
Guest – Eric Balaban – staff counsel representing all prisoners in the Orleans Parrish prison in a longstanding class action lawsuit.
