San Joaquin Co., Stockton To Sue Over Prison Hospital
On Tuesday, the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors and the Stockton City Council separately voted unanimously to file a lawsuit over a state plan to build a 1.2 million square-foot prison health facility in Stockton. Leaders from both organizations said that the California Health Care Facility would further strain the shortage of medical and mental health providers in the area.
