DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
CIV. NO. 20-16584(RMB)
BUMB, United States District Judge
Petitioner Jude Myrthil, a prisoner confined in the Federal
Correctional Facility in Fort Dix, New Jersey (“FCI Fort Dix”)
brings this petition for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. §
2241, challenging the ability of the federal government to detain
Massachusetts. (Pet., Dkt. No. 1.) Pursuant to Rule 4 of the Rules
Governing Cases under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, applicable here under Rule
1, scope of the rules, a judge must promptly examine a habeas
petition. “If it plainly appears from the petition and any attached
exhibits that the petitioner is not entitled to relief in the
district court, the judge must dismiss the petition and direct the
clerk to notify the petitioner.” Id.
The Court takes judicial notice, pursuant to Federal Rule of
Evidence 201(b)(2), that Petitioner is incarcerated in federal
prison, having been convicted and sentenced in the United States

prisoner who is a citizen of Massachusetts cannot be incarcerated
in a federal prison in New Jersey is frivolous. The Court will
dismiss the petition.
Buried within the petition, there is some discussion of
sufficient information for this Court to address a due process
challenge to the loss of Good Conduct Time as a result of a prison
disciplinary proceeding. See e.g. Wolff v. McDonnell, 418 U.S. 539
(1974); Denny v. Schultz, 708 F.3d 140 (3d Cir. 2013). Dismissal
of this petition is without prejudice to Petitioner filing an
amended petition to raise a due process claim with respect to the
loss of good conduct time.
An appropriate Order follows.
