A judge is allowing a lawsuit filed in Flint federal court by some Michigan Muslim inmates to go forward.
Four inmates claim they received meals during Ramadan that weren't in accordance with the Islamic holiday, in violation of their civil rights. The meals were also under the typical number of calories for inmates.
During the month-long holiday Ramadan, Muslims are supposed to fast during the day, and eat food or drink water only after sundown.
Chris Gautz is with the Michigan Department of Corrections. He says MDOC dietitians design prison meals.
