Lots and lots of interesting commentary on SCOTUS Plata prison ruling

At lots of old and new media outlets, I am already seeing lots of interesting commentary on the Supreme Court's major California prison ruling yesterday in Plata (basics here).  Here are just a few of the interesting and diverse pieces I have seen:

  • From the ACSblog here, "Plata is a Net Benefit to Public Safety and Our Constitutional Rights"

  • From The Atlantic here, "The Best Way to Free 30,000 Convicts"

  • From The Hill here, "Rep. Lungren: Supreme Court ruling will lead to rapes, assaults in California"

  • From The Huffington Post here, "California Prisons Will Still Churn Out Failure"

  • From Rolling Stone here, "Why Supreme Court's CA Prison Ruling is Good for Health Reform"
