Entry Denying Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and Directing Entry of Final Judgment - The petition of Reginald Doss for a writ of habeas corpus challenges a prison disciplinary conviction for attempted assault on staff with bodily fluid (A-111/A-117) identified as STP 15-10-0029. For the reasons explained in this Entry, Mr. Doss's habeas petition must be denied. "The touchstone of due process is protection of the individual against arbitrary action of the government." There was no arbitrary action in any aspect of the charge, disciplinary proceedings, or sanctions involved in the events identified in this action, and there was no constitutional infirmity in the proceeding which entitles Mr. Doss to the relief he seeks. Accordingly, Mr. Doss's petition for a writ of habeas corpus must be denied and the action dismissed. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. (See Entry.) Copy to Petitioner via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 5/8/2017.(APD)
