State Launches Investigation of Bay Area Lawyers Involved in Hunger Strike Negotiations

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has barred two Bay Area attorneys from entering Pelican Bay State Prison as a hunger strike drags on at the facility, asserting that it is investigating them for alleged illegal activity that compromised prison security.

The attorneys are Carol Strickman of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, based in San Francisco; and Marilyn McMahon, executive director of Oakland-based California Prison Focus, according to California Watch. Neither Strickman or McMahon immediately returned our calls for comment.
