SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will no longer keep death row inmates in solitary confinement for years only because of their purported gang affiliations, according to a lawsuit settlement announced Monday.

Six San Quentin State Prison inmates sued in 2015, saying they were being held indefinitely under inhumane and degrading conditions in what prison officials call the "adjustment center." One inmate had been there for 26 years and two others for more than a decade when the lawsuit was filed.
