This is an amended class action complaint, filed in New Jersey, seeking monetary and injunctive relief for all state prisoners with hepatitis C who were denied diagnostic and treatment services for their medical condition. The complaint provides a good outline of potential claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the U.S. constitution for failure to provide adequate protection and medical care for prisoners with or at risk of hepatitis or HIV.
