Muslim Mom's Prison Guard Claims Survive
by Jon Chown
A Muslim mother's civil rights complaint against guards at Salinas Valley State Prison will move forward after a federal judge denied their motion to dismiss.
Latifa Isakhanova, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Azerbaijan, sued William I. Muniz and six other prison guards after receiving rough treatment on a visit to her son in August 2103.
Before she visited, her son had '"signed two prison group grievances and two inmate group appeals challenging SVSP's interference with the religious practices of Muslim inmates,'" U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson wrote in his April 26, order, quoting from her second amended complaint.
