Abstract

Although hundreds of prisons in the United States have been the object of court orders, few have been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of all parties. Following a summary of the long history of one such case, Palmigiano v. Garrahy, this paper presents an in-depth analysis of the process of disengagement that ultimately led to the termination of court supervision. The process is related to contextual factors bearing upon it; the major issues in the process are identified, and the manner of their resolution described. The agreement reached in Palmigiano could serve as a model for the settlement of other cases. © IUP.
