Jones v. Caruso, No. 07-2393

By FindLaw Staff on June 23, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a First Amendment challenge to a prison policy prohibiting the receipt of certain Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) materials by prisoners, a preliminary injunction against the policy is affirmed where the policy was not sufficiently narrowly tailored because effective rules had been developed that allowed prisoners to receive a broad range of UCC-related materials while still limiting fraudulent filings.
