September 17, 2018 14 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER GRANTING PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS, VACATING SANCTIONS, AND DIRECTING ENTRY OF FINAL JUDGMENT - This matter is before the Court on Petitioner William McNeal's petition for a writ of habeas corpus. Mr. McNeal challenges a prison disciplinary proceeding identified as No. ISR 17-05-0048. "The touchstone of due process is protection of the individual against arbitrary action of the government." Wolff, 418 U.S. at 558. Because there was insufficient evide nce of Mr. McNeal's guilt, the disciplinary finding of guilt was arbitrary, and that finding and the sanctions imposed in case No. ISR 17-05-0048 must be VACATED AND RESCINDED. Accordingly, Mr. McNeal's petition for a writ of habeas corpus is GRANTED (SEE ORDER FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION). Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 9/17/2018. Copy to Petitioner via US Mail. (DWH)
