Jailed sue jailers over ban on skin mags

Two inmates have filed a lawsuit on behalf of more than 20,000 state prisoners against the Indiana Department of Correction to overturn a policy that went into effect July 1 barring adult magazines and other printed material that depict nudity or sexual content.

"The policy is written so broadly that it includes within its prohibitions such things as personal letters between prisoners and loved ones and much of the world's great literature and art," said the complaint, which was prepared by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana.
