UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF INDIANA
SUPERINTENDENT, New Castle,
Case No. 1:17-cv-739-TWP-DML
Entry and Order Dismissing Action
This matter is before the Court on the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus filed by
Petitionerof Lablount Jointer-El (“Jointer-El”); challenging the validity of the prison disciplinary
proceeding No. NCF 17-01-073. Jointer-El’s petition is denied and this action is dismissed with
prejudice for the following reasons: (1) the expanded record shows that all the procedural
requirements of Wolff v. McDonnell, 418 U.S. 539, 557 (1974), were supplied, and (2) the decision
itself was supported by at least “some evidence” as required by Superintend., Mass. Corr. Inst. v.
Hill, 472 U.S. 445, 454 (1985). Joiner-El has not shown or argued otherwise. In addition, even if
an error or irregularity reached the level of constitutional magnitude, the location of the contraband
and the ensuing proceedings show that any error was harmless and that Joiner-El was not
prejudiced. Piggie v. Cotton, 342 F.3d 660, 666 (7th Cir. 2003).
Judgment consistent with this Entry shall now issue.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
