Florida corrections department sued for not offering kosher meals

“The federal government has sued Florida’s Department of Corrections for not offering kosher meals to all prison inmates.

In its lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Miami, federal officials say that by refusing to offer the strict religious diet in line with Jewish beliefs, the state “forces hundreds of its prisoners to violate their core religious beliefs on a daily basis.”
