HARVEST, Ala. — Prisoners who need AIDS or H.I.V. medication at the Limestone Correctional Facility here must get up at 3 in the morning to stand in line for it. The wait can take 45 minutes. Then they repeat the exercise at 10 in the morning, and again at 3 in the afternoon.
Those who are too sleepy or sick to stand in line miss out, a federal lawsuit maintains.
