Texas inmates sue for air conditioning

Texas inmates sueCivil rights lawyers have filed a lawsuit on behalf of prison inmates who say their Houston-area prison needs air conditioning during the summer.

The lawsuit, filed by Austin lawyer Jeff Edwards, asks that the temperature at Wallace Pack Unit in Navasota be cooled to at least 88 degrees at all times, not for comfort, but for safety reasons, the Austin American Statesman reported.

The Wallace Pack Unit houses hundreds of geriatric inmates.

Temperatures inside the facility "routinely exceed 100 degrees inside inmate housing areas, threatening the health and welfare of all inmates, especially the elderly, sick and disabled," the lawsuit said.

Inmates are forced to wrap themselves in towels to protect their skin from the burning temperatures of stainless steel tables inside the prison. They often choose to sleep on the concrete floors instead of their metal bunks to cool off, the lawsuit said.
