Entry Discussing Motion to Dismiss
Joseph Williams was found guilty of violating prison rules and was
sanctioned in a prison disciplinary proceeding identified as No. ISF 11-10-0234, The
earned credit time sanction was suspended and now can no longer be imposed. The
result is that Mr. Williams is no longer in custody pursuant to the challenged
disciplinary proceeding. This development renders this action moot, because "[a]
case is moot when issues presented are no longer 'live' or the parties lack a legally
cognizable interest in the outcome." Erie v. Pap's A.M., 529 U.S. 277, 287 (2000)
(internal citations omitted).
The respondent=s motion to dismiss  is granted. Judgment dismissing this
action for lack of jurisdiction shall now issue.
The status conference set for August 10, 2012 is vacated.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
