Asatru Prisoner News: Pickering v. California Dept. of Corrections

From California comes Pickering v. California Dept. of Corrections that was recently (Dec 18) dismissed. The plaintiff had said that his religious rights were denied regarding a wide variety of issues from access to the prison chapel to access to religious books to oils to access to outdoor worship space, dating back to 2008.

The judge said that while the specific instances did indeed happen, they did not constitute a valid complaint according to the law, but the defendant could resubmit his case at a later date, provided it was amended appropriately.
