SIGNIFICANT CASES
FCI FORREST CITY
Philip Fairchild V Marvin D Morrison.
In this FCI Forrest City
case, the District Judge denied the government's Motion for
Summary Judgment. In this discipline related habeas case, the
court felt that the parties were at odds over the basic facts
concerning what notice was given to inmate Fairchild and what
rights were afforded him in the disciplinary process. The
factual dispute precluded the entry of summary judgment on the
issue of whether due process was afforded him in the disciplinary
process. Due to the nature of the ruling being fact sensitive,
as opposed to a rule of law, we will not seek an appeal.

4061

PCI THREE RIVERS
Chambers v. Purdy, et al., CA-C-00-337 (WDTX). In this hybrid
FTCA and Bivens-style FCI Three Rivers suit, the plaintiff seeks
to sue the United States and six individual·ly-named defendants,
alleging that he was continuously subjected to second-hand smoke,
and was harassed in retaliation for complaining about it. The
plaintiff, who has exhausted his administrative remedies, does
not specify the amount of damages which he seeks, but his
administrative tort claim was for $1,587,750.00.
FCI EL RENO
Fortunatus Wilcox v. Aleman, No. 00-6221 (10 th Cir. Feb. 12,
2001). This case, won at the district court level, is a § 2241
case involving a DHO hearing. The 10t~ Circuit affirmed in part
and reversed in part. The 10~h Circuit has remanded the case for
an evidentiary hearing to determine whether or not pe

CASES WITH HEARINGS OR TRIALS
FDC OAKDALE

FDC Oakdale reports a one-day trial occurred in Kennedy y. United
(WO/LA) , on March 5, 2001. The former inmate plaintiff,
acting pro se, sought relief pursuant to the FCTA under a failure
to protect theory. Specifically, he claimed FDC Oakdale staff
did not respond to his request for a new cellmate in a timely
manner. Prior to implementation of an approved change in cell
assignment, an altercation occurred between plaintiff and his
cellmate during which plaintiff sustained a broken hip.
The
Court entered a judgment in the government's favor on March 20,
2001. The former inmate has another FTCA action pending in the
District of Maryland, the location of his current residence, in
which he challenges the decision of FDC Oakdale staff to deem his
refusal to wear a black box as a refusal to attend a follow-up
visit for an examination of his surgically repaired hip.

SIGNIFICANT CASES
PCI BIG SPR:ING

Wjlliam P. Skinner y Ralph J. Payne. Warden; A-00-CA-6SS-JRN.

In
this case·, an FC! Big Spring inmate alleged that the BOP failed
to follow his sentencing court's order on April 7, 2000, that BOP
assign him to the ICC program, despite BOP's determination that he
was ineligible. On October 26, 2000, Skinner filed a habeas
petition asking his sentencing court to amend his sentence to
impose the functional equivalent of a completed assignment to
ICC. On November 13, 2000, Skinner was transferred to the ICC
program at FCI Lompoc. After his arrival, he declined to
participate in the program and was transferred back to FCI Big
Spring on November 27, 2000. On February 23, 2001, Judge James
R. Nowlin, Chief United States District Judge for the Western
District of Texas, ordered Skinner .released based on time served
due to his significant contributions to the prosecution. On
February 26, 2001, Judge Nowlin dismissed the habeas petition as
moot because Skinner had been previously released.
PCI LA TUNA

As previously reported,
(formerly an FCI La Tuna
inmate) was released as a result ot an adverse U. S. District
Court ruling relating to the 18 U.S.~. 3621(e) early release
provisions. The BOP was successful on appeal to the 5 th Circuit,
and the U. S. District Court reversed the order which released
.

date. The Criminal AUSA filed a motion for an order directing
the defendant to surrender to the U. S. Marshals Service for
execution of the balance of his federal sentence.
filed 2
successive habeas petitions to have a hearing on the merits
already decided in the 5 th Circuit. On March 9, 2001, Judge
Stephen M. Reasoner, in the Eastern District of Arkansas District
court, ordered dismissal with prejudice of
Habeas Petition
th
th
reasoning the 8 Circuit was bound by the 5 Circuit's decision
on the merits.
then filed a request for an evidentiary
hearing on his motion for reconsideratioa. On March 14, 2001,
Judge Reasoner denied
request on his motion for
reconsideration and ordered
to report to the BOP on
March 23, 2001.
then moved the court for an order allowing
him to serve his undischarged sentence in a halfway house. On
March 23, 2001, Judge Reasoner held the court lacked jurisdiction
to determine
. place of confinement and ordered
.
to
report to FeI Forrest City on April 2, 2001.

Lisa Booth v. Bureau of Prisons et ale
Former inmate Lisa Booth,
and three other female inmates, filed this FTCA/Bivens action
against the Bureau and former Correctional Counselor Breavess
McBride for the sexual assault committed by Breavess McBride in
1996 and 1997. Breavess McBride is currently incarcerated at FMC
Fort Devens. Although three of the four plaintiffs filed a tort
claim administratively, the claims were filed after the two-year
statute of limitations and, thus, were denied as time barred.
The u.s. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
is contemplating filing a dispositive motion for summary
judgment, or alternatively a motion for change of venue to the
Western District of Oklahoma.

A status conference was held on April 19, 2001, in front of Magistrate Judge Argo in
Wilcox v. Aleman. et aL, No. 00-6221 (10 th Circuit). The conference pertained to a
remand order by the 10th Circuit on the issue of inmate Wilcox being coerced into
waiving his right to call witnesses at his DHO hearing in July, 1998, at Fel Three Rivers.
Since Wilcox has discharged his federal sentence, a Motion to Dismiss was filed arguing
the case is moot. A tentative evidentiary hearing date has been scheduled for June 25,
2001, at 9:00 a.m ..
CASES WITH SETTLEMENTS OR AWARDS

a.

Adverse judgments

Alcala. On April 12, 2001, the 5th Circuit, in a very short opinion, upheld Bureau policy
regarding the non-selection of inmates with deportation orders for work in UNICOR. We
prevailed in the District Court and the inmate, who was at FCI Three Rivers, appealed to
the 5th Circuit.

Richard Paul Henrikson v. Bob Guzik; Case No. 4:99 - CV-0579J,
N.D. TX. On July 19, 1999, inmate Henrikson filed a Writ of
Habeas Corpus pursuant 28 U.S.C. § 2241 and 18 U.S.C. § 4042(b}
challenging the Bureau of Prisons' determination that he was
subject to the notification requirement under 18 U.S.C. §
4042(b}.
This determination was based on his prior 1977 state
conviction for Arson of a Dwelling even though his current
offense, Possession of Unregistered Firearms, did not meet the
criteria for notification purposes. The U. S. District Court for
the Northern District of Texas dismissed the case, upholding the
Bureau or Prisons' interpretation of statute (see Program
Statement 5110.12, Notifications of Release to State and Local
Law Enforcement Officials) requiring notification to law
enforcement officials for inmates releasing with prior
convictions determined to be crimes of violence and drug

4095

trafficking crimes.
Inmate Henrikson appealed the u.s. District
Court's decision.
Subsequently, on April 24, 2001, the United
States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit, reversed the District
Court's decision and "held that statute required Bureau of Prisons
to notify only if prisoner's current conviction was for a crime of
violence or a drug trafficking crime."

(,'

The U.S. Court of Appeals found the District Court erred in affording deference to
Chevron. Additionally, the U. S. Court of Appeals "did not find the Bureau's construction
of section 4042(b) in this respect as set forth in Program Statement 5110.12 to be a
permissible, much less a persuasive, one." We have requested guidance by Central
Office on future notification procedures.

SIGNIFICANT CASES
FMC FORT WORTH
Halig v. United States of America, Civil Action 4:97-CV-1030-Y, Northern District of
Texas-Ft. Worth Division. This case is a slip and fall case. The plaintiff alleges the
government was negligent in not warning him of water that was allegedly on the floor at
or near the ice machine of his housing unit. A trial
was held on November 8,2000. In March 2001, the Judge found the government was
not liable and dismissed the case with prejudice.
FTC OKLAHOMA CITY
Trentadue. On December 15, 2000, the day after closing arguments were heard, the
jury returned a verdict for the Plaintiff in the amount of $20,000.00, finding former BOP
Lieutenant Stuart Lee had been deliberately indifferent to the inmate's medical needs.
This was a jury verdict against Mr. Lee in his individual capacity. On May 1', 2001, Judge
Tim Leonard ordered the United States to pay the Trentadue family 1.1 million dollars for
the intentional infliction of emotional distress under the Federal Tort Claims Act. The
Court stated that the BOP failed to inform the family in advance as to the existence of
the extensive injuries to Trentadue and that an autopsy had been performed.

of section 4042(b) in this respect as set forth in Program Statement 5110.12 to be a
permissible, much less a persuasive, one." We have requested guidance by Central
Office on future notification procedures.
