(CAMP, 2009). Therefore Ms. Adams did not receive treatment for her disorder because she was not receiving treatment before being incarcerated. The Judge ruled that correctional facility must treat the defendant because they had began to treat her on hormone therapy once the complaint was filed. Therefore the Director of Health for the prison issued a memo to all facilities that the inmates who suffer from GID must first receive a psychological evaluation prior to being treated. Another example of prison policies is in regard to inmate’s personal property. Prisoner Abdus-Shahid M. S. Ali temporarily left his two bags of possessions with a police officer while being transported from one prison to another. When Ali obtains possession of his belongings he noticed that several items were missing. “He filed an administrative tort claim with the Bureau of Prisons seeking to recover the items. After the claim was denied, he brought his case to U.S. District Court. The court dismissed the case for lack of jurisdiction, ruling that the government had immunity from the lawsuit under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA)” (ALI v. FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS, 2012). The FTCA establishes sovereign immunity for tort claims against the government, but it also makes several exceptions to the waiver. “One exception is for "[a]ny claim arising in respect of [. ..] the detention of any goods, merchandise, or other property by any officer of customs or excise or any other law enforcement officer" (ALI v. FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS, 2012). Ali’s argument was that the context phrase "other law enforcement officer" referred specifically to officers working in customs and related activities, yet the court applied the exception to any detention of goods by any law enforcement officer.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS, 2012). The ruling of this case left the government with its sovereignty and was unchanged by the unhappiness of Mr. Ali. These are examples of how diversity training is important in the Department of Justice. In the case of Ms. Adams had the facility not began hormone treatment, the department would have had a fair advantage in the case. It is apparent that the facility was unstable on the solution to Ms. Adams problem. Lastly the case of Mr. Ali, is unclear on what the items were that the officer
