Order Denying Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus and Directing Entry of Final Judgment - The petition of Mark A. Shannon for a writ of habeas corpus challenges Indiana prison disciplinary proceeding number IYC 14-07-0120. Mr. Shannon had been disciplined in July, 2014, for possessing a cellular telephone in prison. Two and a half years later Mr. Shannon brought this habeas corpus action to challenge the discipline. For the reasons explained in this Order, Mr. Shannon's habeas petition is denied. 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. Shannon to the relief he seeks. Accordingly, Mark A. Shannon's petition for a writ of habeas corpus is denied. Final judgment consistent with this Order shall now issue. Finally, the Court takes judicial notice that Mr. Shannon is currently being confined in a correctional facility in Kentucky. The clerk is directed to update the docket to reflect Mr. Shannon's address as shown in the distribution list below. (SEE ENTRY). Copy to petitioner via US Mail.
