Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana decision today

In Scruggs v. Jordan (ND Ind., Allen Sharp, Judge), a 10-page opinion, KANNE, Circuit Judge, writes"

Aaron Scruggs, an inmate in Indiana state prison, was sanctioned by the prison’s Conduct Adjustment Board (“CAB”) after he struck another inmate with his cane in order to stop that inmate from stabbing a third inmate. Scruggs filed a petition for habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 in the Northern District of Indiana alleging due process and equal protection violations arising from his disciplinary hearing. The district court denied the petition on the merits and we affirm.
