Default Federal judge orders FL to treat all Hep C cases.

The federal judge who previously ordered Florida DOC to treat Hepatitis C infected inmates, although giving them enough wiggle room to have his order ignored, apparently got angry enough to put an end to that avoidance. The new order says Florida's prison officials have been “deliberately indifferent” in caring for thousands of inmates infected with the virus and ordered them to treat everyone diagnosed with the disease with the expensive, but available, viral protein inhibitor medicines.
