PINE BLUFF DIVISION
WILLIE GASTER DAVIS, JR.,

BARBARA A. MONTGOMERY,
Sergeant, Maximum Security Unit, et al.
Willie Gaster Davis, Jr., has filed a motion for reconsideration of the Order dismissing his
action. He asserts that the Court erred in failing to address his Sixth Amendment claim. The United
States Supreme Court has held that inmates have no Sixth Amendment right to counsel at prison
disciplinary proceedings. Baxter v. Palmigiano, 425 U.S. 308, 315, 96 S. Ct. 1551, 1556, 47 L. Ed.
2d 810 (1976); Wolff v. McDonnell, 418 U.S. 539, 570, 94 S. Ct. 2963, 2981, 41 L. Ed. 2d 935
(1974). Therefore, the motion for reconsideration is DENIED. Document #12.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 25th day of July, 2011.
