Quotes

"The genesis was the cost of litigation of frivolous lawsuits coming from inmates within the corrections system," Orr said. "i know across the state they were having to defend prisoner pro se (without a lawyer) litigation because, admittedly, incarcerated individuals have a lot of time on their hands."
