Siddique Hasan ends hunger strike.

 According to his lawyer,  Siddique Abdullah Hasan has ended his hunger strike due to health concerns.  Rick Kerger, Hasan's lawyer is working on a lawsuit against the ODRC over the violations of due process in OSP's disciplinary process. Another lawyer is already arguing a first and fourteenth amendment case over media access on behalf of Hasan, other Lucasville Uprising prisoners, and reporters and documentaries who have been denied access.

Last Friday Hasan was moved to the infirmary,  after losing 17 pounds. At that time,  Jason Robb who was also on hunger strike for the same reasons,  had already come off after a stay in the infirmary and losing 22 pounds.
