Cox v. Cook

No. 74-751

Decided March 24, 1975

420 U.S. 734


In state prisoner's action against prison officials seeking damages and expunction of records for alleged due process violations in summarily placing him in solitary confinement, relief cannot be based on the rules requiring notice and a hearing in connection with serious prison discipline determinations announced in the nonretroactive decision, Wolf v. McDonnell, 418 U. S. 539, or in Landman v. Royster, 333 F.Supp. 621, where the discipline determinations in question all occurred before the dates of those decisions.

Certiorari granted; reversed.
