Four Muslim prisoners brought a suit against the Michigan Department of Corrections, claiming that the meals that were provided to them during the month of Ramadan provided inadequate nutritional and caloric value. According to the plaintiffs, the defendant had failed to abide by a previous court ruling requiring them to provide a certain number of calories per day. In addition, the plaintiffs claimed that neither the defendant nor the previous judge had ensured that a similar situation would not occur the following Ramadan. The plaintiffs filed an "Emergency Motion for Temporary Restraining Order, Preliminary Injunction and/or Permanent Injunction." The Court denied it as moot, since Ramadan 2013 had already concluded, and Ramadan 2014 was too far into the future to warrant immediate action.
