~

Clark, 90-3713-WLB,

FILS has been set for trial on June 30, 1992 in East

st. Louis.

This action involves an inmate that transferred to the USP
Marion from a facility where he utilized common fare in
satisfaction of his dietary requirements under the Eckankar
reliqion. Upon arrival at Marion the inmate discovered common
fare was not available and he requested a Kosher diet. He was
initially denied the Kosher diet on the basis he was not Jewish
and-did not sincerely embrace those religious beliefs.

The court required the inmate to demonstrate exhaustion of
administrative remedies on the matter as well as show a
sincerely held belief in Judaism.
Subsequently, the inmate wae interviewed by the institution
Rabbi and it was concluded the inmate was sinoere 1n his desire
to convert and adopt the tenants of the Jewish religion.
Collaterally, the inmate exhausted his administrative remedies
and was allowed to utilize a Kosher diet.

The inmate was not satisfied with this relief and continues to
request damaqes for the . period of time he contends he was
wrongfully denied a Kosher diet.
Should you have any questions in this matter,
contact me at 752-1307.
