Entry and Order Dismissing Action
AA necessary predicate for the granting of federal habeas relief [to a
petitioner] is a determination by the federal court that [his or her] custody violates
the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States.@1 Accordingly, habeas
corpus review is available only Awhere the deprivation of rights is such that it
necessarily impacts the fact or length of detention.@2 This means, in part, that a
challenge to the conditions of confinement may not be brought pursuant to 28
U.S.C. ' 2241.3
The petitioner seeks a writ of habeas corpus based on conditions of his
confinement, involving his assignment to certain programs, at the Federal
Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana.
The writ which sought is not available based on the allegations presented.
The action is therefore summarily dismissed without prejudice.4
