Inmates sued the state over conditions at Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake in 2016 with the assistance of the ACLU and Juvenile Law Center. In a settlement last year, the state agreed to overhaul operations at the prison and scale back the use of solitary confinement, pepper spray, handcuffs and shackles.
