Hope v. Warden Cook Cnty. Prison

In Hope v. Warden York Cnty. Prison, the 3rd Circuit held that Petitioners’ claim that unconstitutional conditions of confinement at York and Pike Co. required their release was cognizable in habeas. However, Petitioners did not show a substantial likelihood of success on their claim that the conditions of their confinement constituted unconstitutional punishment. Moreover, the Court held that Petitioners fell “well short” of establishing that the Government was deliberately indifferent toward their medical needs.
