An Illinois judge is allowing a group of teens to sue Empire for filming the show in the juvenile prison they reside in.

The lawsuit also alleges:

  • That inmates were ordered into “pod” areas and sat there for days.
  • They were deprived of their daily education, recreational activities, the library, the infirmary and the chapel.
  • Sick requests were ignored and family visits were eliminated.
  • Those with diagnosed mental disorders were psychologically damaged by the lockdowns.
  • Inmates’ due process rights were routinely denied by the lockdowns.
