IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION DENNIS WARREN ADC # 94167 PLAINTIFF No. 4:14-cv-133-DPM-JJV v. JAMES, Records, Wrightsville Unit; PAYNE, Warden, Wrightsville Unit; GRANT HARRIS, Director, ADC; and DINA TYLER, Public Services, Arkansas Board of Correction DEFENDANTS ORDER Opposed recommendation, NQ 4, adopted. FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)(3). Warren offers some new proof that he's already completed one Braille program and may be owed good-time credit. See NQ 5 at 3 and NQ 5 at 4. But because Warren has no liberty interest in good-time credit, McKinnon v. Norris, 366 Ark. 404, 408-409, 231 S.W.3d 725, 730 (2006), there are no dueprocess issues here. No strike is assessed; Warren has gotten incomplete and mixed messages from prison staff. Compare NQ 2 at 7 and NQ 2 at 9. Whether he deserves credit for the already completed Braille program is still, it seems, an open question. So Ordered. v D.P. Marshall Jr. United States District Judge -2-
