Dozens of inmates sue Schuylkill County prison

Dozens of inmates are suing Schuylkill County prison for alleged civil rights violations.

The federal suit was filed earlier this week, by 45 plaintiffs.

Their complaints include being served an inadequate amount of food and being forced to sleep on the floor.

The inmates are calling for several employees to be fired.

Officials at the prison say they take every inmate complaint seriously and try to provide prisoners the best conditions possible.
