King v. Frank.

U.S. District Court

LIGHTS

NOISE

King v. Frank, 328 F.Supp.2d 940 (W.D. Wis. 2004). An inmate sued a state correctional institutional claiming that conditions of confinement violated his constitutional rights. The district court held that the inmate stated a claim with his allegation that the provision of visitation through a poor quality closed circuit television system violated his First Amendment rights. The court also found that a claim was stated by the constant illumination of the inmate's cell. The court held that the inmate's Eighth Amendment rights were not violated when he was subjected to the noise of other inmates as they responded to television programs they were watching or sang along with the radio.
