JORDAN ET. AL. V. GARDNER ET. AL. CA9 NO.' S 90-35307; 90-35552
EN BANC OPINION FEBRUARY 25, 1993.
THE 5 FEDERAL INSTITUTIONS IN WXR CURRENTLY HOUSING FEMALE PRETRIALERS AND
SENTENCED OFFENDERS (FCI PLE, MDC LA, MCC SD, FPC PHX, AND FCI TCN) HAVE
SUSPENDED CROSS GENDER PAT SEARCHES TEMPORARILY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FROM

HALE V. ARC OR CA9 NO. 88-15785, 89-15162 EN BANC OPINION MAY 4, 1993.
THE 9TH CIRCUIT ACTUALLY REVERSED A PANEL DECISION FAVORABLE TO INMATES! !!
THE PANEL BELOW IN A 2-1 OPINION INDICATED THAT FOR SOME WORK ASSIGNMENTS

STATED IT COULD NOT MAKE A BLANKET DECISION THAT INMATES WERE NEVER

EMPLOYEES. HOWEVER, IN THIS SITUATION I NVOLVING ARIZONA DOC INMATES, THE
COURT FOUND THE CONTROL OVER THE INMATES DOES NOT STEM FROM ANY REMUNERATIVE RELATIONSHIP OR BARGAINED-FOR EXCHANGE OF LABOR FOR CONSIDERATION,
BUT FROM INCARCERATION ITSELF (QUOTING VANSKIKE V. PETERS, 974 F.2D 806
7TH CIR. 1992&; CERT. DENIED, 113 S.CT. 1303 1993&). THE 9TH CIRCUIT
HELD THE LABOR PROVIDED TO ARCOR BY ARIZONA DOC INMATES WORKING FOR PROGRAMS STRUCTURED PURSUANT TO THE STATE'S REQUIREMENT THAT PRISONERS WORK
AT HARD LABOR IS LABOR BELONGING TO THE INSTITUTION AND DOES NOT ENTITLE
INMATES TO MINIMUM WAGE.
