Haendel v. Clark

Factual disputes prevented summary judgment as to whether the defendants violated the plaintiff’s First Amendment rights in prison by not offering food that was kosher for Passover, rather than merely kosher. A jury could also find that the defendants discriminated against the plaintiff based on his religion by imposing harsher discipline on him than on inmates who harassed him for being Jewish, and for applying stricter access rules to Jewish materials.

Haendel v. Clark, No. 7:17cv135, Sept. 18, 2018. WDVA at Roanoke (Kiser).
