In the latest twist in six years of wrangling over the state's prison labor program, a judge decided Thursday not to order the California Department of Corrections to seek back wages for prisoners from a company that employed them. Superior Court Judge William Pate agreed with the department that it lacks the authority to file a lawsuit on behalf of prisoners at Calipatria State Prison in Imperial County who were hired to make wire racks.
