Tell Attorney General Kris Mayes To Not Appeal The Jensen v. Shinn Remedial Order
Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes
Tell Arizona Attorney General Kris Mays To Not Appeal The Remedial Order In the Jensen v. Shinn Class Action Lawsuit Finding the ADCRR Systematically Violates the Eighth Amendment Rights of the People Held in Arizona Prisons.
As Arizonans, we must tell AG Mayes that we stand in support of the protection of the constitutional rights of those held in ADCRR custody. The Remedial Order issued by District Judge Roslyn O' Silver addresses long-standing and unconstitutional issues within the department, and it is important that these issues are addressed in a timely manner. Appealing the Remedial Order would only prolong the suffering of these individuals and continue to waste Arizona taxpayers' money on legal fees.
Secondly, we must tell AG Mayes that we call for an end to the waste of taxpayer money on private law firms. Private firms have been allowed to prolong the lawsuit and delay much-needed reform, all while earning legal fees on the taxpayers' dime. We must no longer allow this misuse of taxpayer money and demand transparency and accountability from the Attorney General Kris Mayes and for her to immediately end all contracts for private counsel to represent the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry.
Lastly, we must tell AG Mayes that Arizona taxpayers believe the Remedial Order is a necessary step towards ensuring that the state takes responsibility for the well-being of individuals in its custody. By signing the petition, individuals are sending a message to the state that they will not stand idly by while constitutional rights are violated. It is a way for individuals to take a stand and make a difference in the lives of those in the custody of ADCRR.
Tell AG Mayes that we sign this petition to stand in support of protecting the rights of individuals in custody, to stop the waste of tax-payers money on legal firms, and holding the state accountable for individuals in their custody.

From: [Your Name]
I am writing to you as a concerned citizen to urge you to not appeal the Remedial Order issued by United States District Court Judge Roslyn O. Silver regarding ADCRR systematic violations of the Eighth Amendment rights of the incarcerated men and women held in ADCRR in the Jensen v. Shinn Class Action dated January 9, 2023.
As you are aware, the Remedial Order addresses long-standing and unconstitutional issues within the ADCRR and it is crucial that these issues are addressed in a timely manner. Any appeal of the Remedial Order would only prolong the suffering of those individuals in ADCRR custody and continue to waste Arizona taxpayers' money on legal fees.
Furthermore, I urge you to cancel any contracts with private law firms that have been representing the ADCRR in this lawsuit. These firms have been allowed to prolong the lawsuit, delay much-needed reform, and waste taxpayer money on legal fees. This is unacceptable and it is time for transparency and accountability in the actions of our government officials.
As a Arizona citizen, I believe it is the state's responsibility to ensure that the rights and well-being of individuals in its custody are protected and upheld. I am writing to you today to urge you to take responsibility for the well-being of individuals in the ADCRR's custody and to not appeal the Remedial Order and to cancel any contracts with private law firms representing the ADCRR in the Jensen v. Shinn Class Action Lawsuit.
I hope that you will take the concerns of the citizens and taxpayers of Arizona into consideration when making your decision.
