FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
MONTGOMERY COUNTY DISTRICT :
1 COURTS, et al.,
Case No. 3:17cv00403
District Judge Thomas M. Rose
Magistrate Judge Sharon L. Ovington
ORDER TRANSFERRING REFERENCE
Plaintiff David Robinson is an inmate at the London, Ohio Correctional Institution.
He brings this case pro se and in forma pauperis. He alleges that he has done all his
“stated terms” and served all of his sentence. See Doc. #1, PageID #2 (“I did all of my
time.”). He asks the Court to vacate his sentence to post-release control. He specifies, “I
am not filing a money lawsuit, I am filing to be released from this post-release control from
or through the Ohio Adult Parole Authority.” Id. at 3.
“[H]abeas corpus is the exclusive remedy for a state prisoner who challenges the
fact or duration of his confinement and seeks immediate or speedier release, even though
such a claim may come within the literal terms of [42 U.S.C.] § 1983.” Heck v.
Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477, 481 (1994) (discussing Preiser v. Rodriguez, 411 U.S. 475,
488-90 (1973)). Plaintiff’s Complaint essentially seeks relief in the form of a writ of
habeas corpus because, rather than pursuing money damages, he asks for an immediate or
speedier release from his present confinement and from his sentence to post-release
control. This case is therefore TRANSFERRED from Magistrate Judge Sharon L.
Ovington’s docket to the docket Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz.
