There is no set time limit on how long an inmate can be held in solitary.

Inmate Silverstein was held in Solitary for over 30+ years. This is an extreme case of course.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Silverstein

Generally though, prisons do not want to house inmates in solitary for any length of time. While housed in the SHU (special housing unit) it is better for the inmate's mental health to be housed with another individual.

This sometimes is not possible, because of certain safety factors. Inmate is a danger to others, or is viewed as a intolerable cellmate by other inmates and it leads to fights in the cell.

But speaking from experience, I have not seen an inmate locked up in SHU (with a cellmate) for longer than a year. Usually its a max of 3-4 months.

Are they giving any answers or are they constantly changing the information he is given? Do they tell the inmate and end date when they will get out of the SHU in federal?

Getting an end of solitary confinement date in federal prisons can be a yes, or a no. If convicted in a conduct violation hearing, the answer is yes. If "under investigation", the answer is no. I know someone who was "investigated" in the SHU for more than 2 years right after 9/11 and eventually released without "charges".

The bop bureaucrats find ways to do whatever they want to do.

That seems to be what they are doing. Just whatever they want to do.
