Monica Hopkins, executive director for ACLU Idaho, hopes to bring the privately-owned correction center south of Boise "back in line" with the Constitution of Idaho through a lawsuit against the state and the private company that operates the facility.  Hopkins said her organization is suing Idaho and Corrections Corporations of America for $155 million and is seeking an injunction to change the way the company operates the center, which she called a "gladiator school."

In a video interview with IdahoReporter.com, Hopkins explains why the ACLU decided to sue for $155 million and why she thinks the facility has three times the amount of violence reported at other facilities.
