Godsey v. Sawyer

This court case is active

The ACLU of Washington has filed a civil rights lawsuit against the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) for denying people with opioid use disorder (OUD) medications necessary to treat their addiction. The lawsuit, brought on behalf of Melissa Godsey, challenges BOP’s policy of refusing to provide people access to Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), even though it provides other clinically appropriate medications to inmates.
