Harper v. Sheriff of Cook County, No. 08-3413

By FindLaw Staff on September 08, 2009 4:17 PM

District court's certification of a class action lawsuit involving challenges to the constitutionality of certain intake procedures at a county jail is vacated as the intake procedures detainees are required to undergo on remand to the Sheriff's custody after a probable cause hearing are an individual issue and thus, not appropriate for class disposition. The matter is remanded for resolution of plaintiff's individual claims.
