BOISE —Justices on the Idaho Supreme Court convened over video conference to hear arguments over a lawsuit brought forward by inmates incarcerated in the Elmore County Jail concerned with the facility’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. The state’s highest court convened Friday morning just months after a petition for habeas corpus was filed by Idaho Falls attorney Nathan Olsen on behalf of nine inmates at the Elmore County Jail, alleging that the conditions in jail posed a serious risk to the health of those incarcerated. Habeas corpus is a right of a detainee to go before a court to determine whether the detention is lawful. Court records show the habeas corpus petition was filed April 10, naming nine jail inmates as the petitioners and Elmore County Sheriff Mike Hollinshead as a respondent.
