Thank you for your new question.
Yes, inmates file suit over overcrowding all of the time. The suits are brought in Federal court
under the 8th Amendment right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment
and that is what they claim overcrowding to be. The refusal to provide the inmates with their rights is brought under the 5th, 6th and 8th amendments as well.
If they are under a order from DOJ, then in addition to suit, you can file a new complaint
with the DOJ and the DOJ will go back in and investigate.
This is how these prison violations are handled.
