Officials for the Nevada prison system say it is not discontinuing its kosher meal program, contrary to the allegations of a recent lawsuit. On June 1, attorneys for Howard Ackerman, an Orthodox Jewish prisoner in Carson City, Nev., filed a lawsuit against the state. The suit claimed that the state's corrections department intended to stop serving kosher meals to inmates within a week, thus violating their client’s freedom to practice his religion.
