Prison company turns over records to publication

The Associated Press

A nonprofit criminal-justice publication says a private prison company has agreed to turn over records that were the subject of a lawsuit in Florida.

According to a news release from Prison Legal News, the Geo Group agreed to produce a spreadsheet that detailed successful litigation against the Boca Raton-based company, as well as copies of the complaints and settlements from ten lawsuits.

Prison Legal News editor Paul Wright said in a statement that the publication was disappointed that the case stretched on for years, but pleased with the eventual result.

Gregory Allen Kummerlen, an attorney who represented the Geo Group in the case, declined to comment. An e-mail sent to a Geo Group spokesman was not immediately returned.
