Borzych v. Frank, 05-3907

Denial of prisoner's claims in a 42 U.S.C. 1983 action arising out of a ban on religious literature that advocated racial violence is affirmed where the prison system's ban was the least restrictive means to promote a compelling state safety interest, and the overbreadth of the internal prison regulation was relatively insubstantial.
