This Handbook explains how a prisoner can start a lawsuit in federal court, to fight against mistreatment and bad conditions in prison. Because most prisoners are in state prisons, the authors focus on those. However, people in federal prisons and city or county jails will be able to use the Handbook too.
This is the fifth edition, revised and printed in 2010.
You can download the handbook here for free, or to receive a hard copy, please mail $2.00 in money order, check, or stamps to:

This booklet is a transcription from a panel held on October 7, 2008 at New York University Law School in New York, NY. The event was sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild, the NLG New York City Chapter and the NLG NYU Law School Chapter.
This pocket-sized booklet describes how environmental and animal rights activists have been targeted by the government and branded as the top threat to domestic security. Operation Backfire discusses new federal legislation written to allow environmental and animal rights activists to be charged as terrorists. It also provides information on recent prosecutions under these laws.
