    Ninth Circuit Revives Wiretapping Action Against For-Profit Prison CoreCivic

    In July of 2018, Kathleen Bliss, on behalf of herself and a proposed class of attorneys, sued the for-profit prison CoreCivic, alleging that the prison wiretapped attorney-client phone calls in violation of federal and state law. The prison moved for summary judgment based on the statute of limitations. Bliss argued that she had claims based on calls that were recorded within two years prior to filing suit and that those claims were timely under the applicable statute of limitations. The district court held Bliss’ claims untimely, and Bliss appealed. On October 27, 2020, the Ninth Circuit issued an opinion stating, in part, “to the extent Bliss’s claims are based on calls that were recorded less than two years before she filed suit on July 12, 2018, they are not time barred,” and remanded the case. Bliss is represented by Nichols Kaster, PLLP, The Hodgson Law Firm, Sandage Law LLC, Joseph Eischens, and Paul Padda Law.
