ENTRY Dismissing Action and Directing Entry of Final Judgment - Petitioner Jesse Oram is a state prisoner who seeks a Writ of Habeas Corpus. He was given a period of time in which to supplement his Petition by identifying the legal basis on which he contends that he was entitled to procedural or substantive due process when petitioning prison authorities for the restoration of earned good time which had previously been forfeited. The deadline for the filing of the supplement has passed. No supplement or other material has been filed. "Federal courts are authorized to dismiss summarily any habeas petition that appears legally insufficient on its face." McFarland v. Scott, 512 U.S. 849, 856 (1994). For the reasons explained in the Entry of June 6, 2016, that is the disposition required in this case. In short, the reason for this conclusion is that the Petitioner was not entitled to any particular due process protections in conjunction with his request for the restoration of a portion of good time which had been forfeited as a result of prison disciplinary proceedings. It is evident, therefore, that the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus shows on its face that the Petitioner is not entitled to the relief he seeks. His petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. Copy to Petitioner via U.S. Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 7/12/2016.(JLS)
