Newton v. Outlaw
ORDER denying pltf's 21 Motion for Reconsideration. Signed by Magistrate Judge H. David Young on 7/17/12. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
DAMEYON ANTOINE NEWTON
NO. 2:12CV00023 HDY
T.C. OUTLAW, Warden, FCI
Forrest City, Arkansas
On June 21, 2012, petitioner Dameyon Antoine Newton (“Newton”) filed two
pleadings that the Clerk of the Court construed as a motion for reconsideration and
accompanying brief. See Documents 21 and 22. In the pleadings, Newton alleged that he
still had not been evaluated for placement in a residential re-entry center (“RRC”), this
despite the fact that his projected release date is allegedly less than twelve months
away. Respondent T.C. Outlaw (“Outlaw”) filed a response to Newton’s submissions at
the behest of the Court. In the response, Outlaw maintained the following:
The records of the Bureau of Prisons show that the Petitioner
received an individualized needs assessment on March 26, 2012. ... The
form shows that the Petitioner was recommended for 90-120 days of RRC
placement, and the form is signed by the Petitioner. ... On June 27, 2012,
the recommendation was modified to 151-180 days of RRC placement. ...
The Petitioner signed the Rules of RRC placement on June 27, 2012. ...
The Petitioner has received his RRC placement and has submitted no
basis for the Court to reconsider its Order dismissing his Writ pursuant to
Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b).
See Document 24 at 1-2. The Court agrees; there is no basis for reconsidering the
memorandum opinion and order, and accompanying judgment, dismissing Newton’s
petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2241. His motion for
reconsideration is therefore denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED this
day of July, 2012.
