Lawyers seek another $1.6M in suit over Arizona inmate care

Arizona Department of Corrections Director Charles Ryan is the target of a lawsuit that challenges the quality of health care in Arizona's prisons. Last week, lawyers representing the state's 34,000 prisoners asked for $1.6 million in additional litigation costs for their work in enforcing a settlement in the case that they say the state has repeatedly resisted. The request comes after attorneys representing inmates have already been awarded $6.1 million. (Ross D. Franklin/AP file)
