Simpson v. Gallant.

U.S. District Court

MAIL

TELEPHONE

Simpson v. Gallant, 223 F.Supp.2d 286 (D.Me. 2002). A pretrial detainee filed a [section]1983 action alleging his constitutional rights were violated when county jail officials denied him access to telephone and mail services. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants. The court held that the refusal to permit the pretrial detainee access to a telephone to arrange bail, after he was placed in disciplinary segregation for violations of jail rules, did not violate the detainee's Fourteenth Amendment rights, where the detainee retained the ability to use the mail and to meet with his attorney.
