    Surrounded by attorneys, James Brown, second from right, talks during a news conference, Wednesday, June 12, 2013, at the ACLU headquarters in Las Vegas, about currently living with his daughter, Shotzy Harrison, far left, of Winston Salem, N.C., after being discharged by doctors from a mental health care facility in Las Vegas and given a one-way bus ticket in February to Northern California. The ACLU and a Sacramento, Calif.-based lawyer, Mark Merin, filed the lawsuit Tuesday on behalf of Brown and nearly 1,500 other people they claim were bused since 2008 to almost every state in the country. Defendants are six state agencies including the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, the Division of Mental Health and Development Services and the Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance, plus eight individual hospital and state agency administrators. The lawsuit makes nine claims, including negligence and breach of fiduciary duty. It seeks an immediate court order to stop Nevada from sending psychiatric patients out of state, unspecified damages for Brown and others, and a declaration that patients' civil rights were violated.

Buckles filed a federal lawsuit Monday, June 18, 2012 claiming he was denied his prescribed medication for HIV for a week when he was an inmate in the Bureau County Jail in Princeton, Ill., in 2010, harming his health and violating his constitutional rights. The county was more worried about the cost of providing Buckles' HIV drugs than about his health, said American Civil Liberties Union attorney John Knight, who is helping represent Buckles. The drugs, a three-pill combination, cost more than $2,000 a month, according to Buckles' jail medical notes released to him by the county and shared by him with The Associated Press. (AP Photo/M.

    Portland Imam Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye leaves the United Sates Court of Appeals following oral arguments on the ACLU No Fly List challenge Friday, May 11, 2012, in Portland, Ore. A federal appeals court in Oregon will hear arguments in a lawsuit filed by 15 men who say their rights were violated because they are on the U.S. government's no-fly list. They are asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland to order their removal from the list or at least get an explanation why they were put on it. The plaintiffs include the imam of a Portland mosque and a Marine veteran who is the son of a Palestinian immigrant. Others are outside the country and unable to return. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
