Appeals court rules against three death row inmates seeking air conditioning

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled state corrections officials do not have to prevent the heat index from going above 88 degrees on Angola’s death row. Attorney General Jeff Landry says Louisiana argued on appeal that the inmates do not have a constitutional right to be comfortable in jail.
 
"They're in jail because they victimized someone and they broke the law.  And this is a case that has been drawn out for quite a some time at a tremendous of expense to the state and is really riduculous."
