U.S. Supreme Court

Atiyeh v. Capps, 449 U.S. 1312 (1981)

Atiyeh v. Capps

No. A-625

Decided February 4, 1981

449 U.S. 1312

Syllabus

An application to stay the District Court's injunction, which requires Oregon officials to eliminate "overcrowding" in a certain prison by reducing the number of prisoners housed there by specified amounts by specified dates, is granted pending either the Court of Appeals' decision in the appeal in this case or this Court's decision in Rhodes v. Chapman, No. 89-332, scheduled for argument this Term and involving similar issues (whichever may come first). It appears that the District Court, in determining the appropriate standards under the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments to be applied in considering conditions of imprisonment, misconstrued pertinent decisions of this Court. Moreover, the District Court's order fails to comply with the specificity requirement of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65(d).
