Hold on inmate transfers continues
The state departments of Corrections and Juvenile Justice have agreed to continue the hold on inmate transfers related to the scheduled closures of prisons, youth centers and adult transition centers until August 31. The state's agreement came in a status call with Judge Cavaness this morning.
The arbitration proceeding began on August 14 and will continue on August 23. Judge Cavaness has set another status call for August 27.
The future of hundreds of jobs at the Tamms prison could be in the hands of a judge later today.
