Baykowski v. Oldham United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit read online review & book description:

Paul Baykowski (a/k/a Isaac Brown) appeals the district court's dismissal of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit alleging that his constitutional rights were violated by the conditions at the Forsyth County Jail (FCJ) while he was detained there as a pretrial detainee during 1988. Baykowski alleges numerous constitutional violations, including claims that his rights were violated by overcrowding, unsanitary living conditions, denial of access to a law library, and denial of access to telephones. Because all of Baykowski's claims lack merit, we affirm the district court's dismissal of Baykowski's complaint. Baykowski alleged that up to 25 inmates at FCJ were forced to share razors which were contaminated by blood, skin and hair. The defendants did not deny Baykowski's allegations. The magistrate's recommendations, later adopted by the district court, stated that the defendants are protected from damages claims by virtue of qualified immunity because pretrial detainees have no established constitutional rights to receive new razors.
