Entry Granting Motion to Dismiss - Veltor Cotton, an inmate presently confined at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility in Carlisle, Indiana, has petitioned this Court to issue a writ of habeas corpus due to errors allegedly occurring in a prison disciplinary proceeding. Specifically, Mr. Cotton challenges a prison disciplinary conviction for a Class A 102 offense of battery with a serious injury, case WVD 15-01- 0059. The Respondent argues that Mr. Cotton did not follow the proper procedure to administratively appeal, thus this action should be dismissed. The court is precluded from reaching the merits of the claims in the petition. The petition for a writ of habeas corpus is therefore denied, the respondent's motion to dismiss [dkt. 10] is granted and this action is dismissed with prejudice. Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue. (See Entry.) Signed by Judge William T. Lawrence on 9/29/2016. (BRR)
