Judge Carroll Delays Ruling on Prison Health Service Privatization
Two unions representing nurses and other state employees were back in court this morning, arguing that efforts by the Florida Department of Corrections (DOC) to privatize prison health services violate state law.
The case was heard at 11:05 a.m. by Judge Kevin Carroll of the 2nd Judicial Circuit Court.
But the prison privatization saga is nowhere near over. The parties will be back in court in a couple of weeks, when Carroll will decide whether to let the case proceed, or else dismiss it and tell the unions they need to start from scratch and file a new lawsuit.
