A settlement has been reached in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of inmates. The suit was filed in 2002 and alleged unconstitutional treatment of the inmates. According to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger "The lawsuit said that California should have done a better job with its young offenders, and it was right.... We are on the right track now." (Nov-17-04)

Is this lawsuit still open? I was a "ward" in CYA from 1995 to 2000 (#73235). I saw & experienced abuse at Nelles and N.A. Chaderjian. Still have nightmares from these years.
