WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

Three separate class actions lawsuits have ended with the Courts finding that the rights of inmates placed in Administrative Segregation while incarcerated in federal penitentiaries were violated. A global award of approximately $28 million is available to pay all eligible claimants, known as Class Members, who make a claim. Additional money may be claimed by eligible Class Members in some cases.

– For any length of time

– AFTER July 20, 2009

– AND you were diagnosed by a medical doctor with a mental disorder or a borderline personality disorder prior or during your incarceration AND you suffer(ed) serious impairment as a result of your disorder and reported such to Correctional Service of Canada (CSC).1

All Administrative Segregation placements count, even if they were recorded as “voluntary”.
