A federal lawsuit over the distribution a journal titled Prison Legal News at a Michigan jail has been settled.

WHMI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/2sQfvgr ) that under the agreement the Livingston County Jail must accept up to 30 subscriptions per month of the publication addressed to specific inmates. The jail also must deliver up to 30 books per month addressed to specific inmates.

Prison Legal News sued the sheriff's department in 2011, saying a policy of limiting mail banned the delivery of its journal and was unconstitutional.
