The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals is again considering a South Dakota inmate's challenge to prison policies on pornography.

The appellate court heard the case in 2018 and sent it back to South Dakota federal court for a new approach to assessing the policy.

That new order was issued a year ago. The Department of Corrections disagreed with the federal district judge's findings and appealed. The Eighth Circuit heard those arguments last week.

Victoria Wicks reports on this case for SDPB.
