Ohio Muslim inmates settle meal preparation suit
by Andrew Welsh-Huggins
A Muslim death row inmate has settled a lawsuit that accused the Ohio prison system of denying him meals prepared according to Islamic law while providing kosher meals to Jewish prisoners.
Ohio had previously decided to remove all pork products from prison menus in response to the lawsuit, though inmates weren't seeking a ban on pork.
Details of the settlement announced Wednesday weren't released. The inmate's lawyer would not comment. JoEllen Smith, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, said no policy changes have been made regarding food preparation.
