Recent Prisoner Free Exercise Cases

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

“In Turner v. Hamblin, (7th Cir., Oct. 27, 2014), the 7th Circuit affirmed the dismissal of a Muslim inmate’s complaint that Islamic services were canceled when non-prisoners were unavailable to lead them, while Christian services were never canceled.

In Lewis v. Grounds, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 152288 (SD IL, Oct. 28, 2014), an Illinois federal district court permitted a Hebrew Israelite inmate to proceed with his claim that the prison grooming policy requires him to violate his Nazarite vow to never cut his “hairlocks.”

In Bailey v. Ingram, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 152493 (ED KY, Oct. 24, 2014), a Kentucky federal district court dismissed a Catholic Cherokee inmate’s complaint that he was terminated from his kitchen job for attending a Christian religious encounter event rather than reporting for work.”
