Inmates have no right to correspond with Inmates In other

force. an Inmate must prove an objective component. which
Inquires whether the alleged wrongdoing was objectively
harmful enough. and a subjective component which InquIres
whether the officials acted with a sufficiently c~pable state
of mind. In this case. the officers were faced wllh a situation
In which they were trying to control an Intoxicated. unruly.
disruptive Inmate. The Inmate has not shown that his
bruises were not the reslA of his own actions. He cannot
show that the force used was not used for the purpose of
restorl~g discipline. Bruises are not always a serious
medical need.

Facts Alleged: Dismissed from CO position at ATl because
of race, threatened co-worker. 08-30-1993 Trial before
Magistrate Allen L Chancey. 10-15-1993 Magistrate's report
recommends dismissal because the employee failed to
carry his burden of proving the adverse personnel actions
were a result of intentional race discrimination.
Special Monitoring: IC2, Publicity /Impact on staff morale,
All employee suits.
Date Case Filed: 04-24-1990
Significant Activity: 02-28-1994 Order adopts magistrate's
report, dismisses case. The employee met his initial burden
by establishing a prima facie case. The Bureau offered
non-discriminatory reasons for Its actions by referring to the
employee's questionable state of mind which resulted from
being held hostage by prisoners in 1987. The Bureau based
Its concerns on a threat made by the employee to a
co-worker and evaluations by the employee's psychologist
which indicated that he should not have direct contact with
tes, he could lose control and become physically
ressive and would never be able to return to work.

Date Case Filed: 04-05-1994
Significant Activity: 12-22-1994 Order grants government's
motion to dismiss. Jurisdiction under 28 U~S.C. 1331 Is not
appropriate. An action does not "arise under' a federal law

judicial remedy for violations thereof. There Is nothing In the
federal veteran's preference laws, 38 U.S.C. 4214
(employment within federal government) or 5 U.S.C. 3112
(noncompetitive appointments of disabled veterans) to
indicate that Congress Intended to create a right of action In
federal court. Absent such an indication, federal question.
jurisdiction Is lacking. Additionally. 28 U.S.C. 1361, does not
provide an independent basis of federal Jurisdiction, but
rather supplies a permissible remedy.

numerous medications. He was seen by two specialist and
given psychiatriC counseling. He was supplied with back

JOHN DAWSON v. ROGER SCOTT
Court: NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
Docket No.: CV-92-AR-1168-E; Type of Case: Habeas
Corpus; Damages Req: 0
Subject SENTENCING, COMMUNITY TREATMENT
CENTERS Institution: Fel, Talladega
Facts Alleged: Inmate at TOG alleges that he has been
denied credit to his sentence for the time spent In the
half-way house and safe house, may have been In state
custody at the time.
Spec/al Monitoring: 0, Not assigned to special monitoring
Date Case Filed: 5-20-1992
Significant Activity: 04-06-1995 Eleventh Circuit affirms
district court dismissal. The inmate is not entitled to jaU
~edit~rtimespe~~aha"~yhou~msa~hou~ua

condition of bond before sentencing or after sentencing
prior to surrender to the custody of the Attorney General.
The BOP's Interpretation of 18 U.S.C. 3585 Is entitled to
Judicial deference. The fact that the conditions of
confinement for pre and post sentence prisoners In half-way
houses are identical does not create an equal protection
violation. They are not similarly situated because their
residence serves a fundamentally and functionally different
purpose. The presentence detainee Is there to protect the
public and assure his presence at trial and sentencing. The
post-sentence Inmate Is there for transitional and
rehabilitative purposes.

VID LUCKIE COCHRAN v. KATHLEEN HAWK, et al

Action (Bivens); Damages Req: $1039.00
Subject: WORK, ADMINISTRATIVE DETENTION
Institution: FCI, Jesup
Facts Alleged: Inmate at JES In 1994 alleges that he was
subjected to continual harassment at his job which resulted
in his health deteriorating.
Special Monitoring: O. Not assigned to special monitoring
Date Case Filed: 11-01-1993
Significant Activity: 03.Q8-1995 Magistrate's report
recommends dismissal. 03-30-1995 Order grants summary
judgement, dismisses case. As to the telephone Issue, the
claim Is factually baseless and moot. To the extent that the
inmate has stated a factual claim, the defendants are
protected from damages by qualified Immunity because the
inmate failed to carry his burden of establishing violation of
clearly established law. The Inmate's factual averments concerning medical care do not rise to the level of a
constitutional deprivation. The allegations concerning his
psychological care are conclusory at best. Additionally,
here as well, the defendants would be entitled to qualified
Immunity.
