PRISON REGULATIONS: VESTAL V. MOTLEY (COA 8/17/2007)

VESTAL V. MOTLEY
CRIMINAL:  Prison regulations
2005-CA-000956
PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING
PANEL: NICKELL PRESIDING; LAMBERT, MOORE CONCUR
COUNTY: FRANKLIN
DATE RENDERED: 8/17/2007

CA affirmed two orders of the Franklin Circuit Court dismissing pro se inmate’s petition for declaratory judgment, and another denying a motion to amend the judgment and compel discovery. The prison warden’s memorandum requiring inmates to have a valid canteen receipt for all perishable items in their possession that is not more than 60 days old did not improperly modify an administrative regulation via internal memorandum and did not deny Vestal due process of law.
