Arizona loses contempt appeal in prison health care case

This July 23, 2014, file photo, shows a state prison in Florence, Arizona. An appeals court has upheld a 2018 contempt-of-court ruling against now-retired Arizona Corrections Director Charles Ryan for failing to follow through on promises in a legal settlement to improve health care for prisoners. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the state's arguments that the judge who found Ryan in civil contempt didn't have contempt powers available to enforce the 5-year-old settlement.
