Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In Curtis Ellison v. Dushan Zatecky (ND Ind., Moody), a 7-page opinion, Judge Williams writes:

A disciplinary officer found in-mate Curtis Ellison guilty of possessing heroin at Pendleton Correctional Facility in Indiana. The officer punished Ellison by stripping him of 90 days’ good-time credit. After exhaust-ing his administrative remedies, Ellison petitioned the dis-trict court for collateral review under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, and he now appeals the denial of that petition. Because Ellison was prevented from defending against the accusation that he possessed a controlled substance, we vacate the district court’s decision and remand for further proceedings.
