Prisoners' legal guide for Va. inmates
A legal guide to challenging prison mistreatment is being made available to Virginia prisoners.
Inmates also will be able to buy subscriptions or receive gift subscriptions from the handbook's publisher -- the National Lawyers Guild and Center for Constitutional Rights.
The Charlottesville Daily Progress reports that the agreement signed Friday settles the publishing company's lawsuit against the Department of Corrections.
A lawyer for the publisher said he was pleased with the settlement.
The attorney general's office declined to comment.
