Adree Edmo v. Corizon, Inc., et al


Amici are legal scholars who study the treatment of incarcerated people under the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Writing and teaching about this topic is a central focus of their work. Amici have a shared interest in the lawful treatment of incarcerated men and women and fidelity to the principles established by the Supreme Court of the United States in Estelle v. Gamble, 429 U.S. 97 (1976). They believe that all people, regardless of their gender identity, are entitled to constitutionally adequate medical treatment consistent with the rule of Estelle.
