Informant’s Identity Not Disclosed in Disciplinary Hearing

The plaintiff in a disciplinary due process case sought disclosure of the identity of a confidential informant. The court denies it because it could endanger the informant's life and undermine security. Also, since the issue is whether 104 days in segregation was atypical and significant, the court doubts that the informant would have material or relevant testimony. See: Cespedes v. Coughlin, 179 F.R.D. 122 (S.D.N.Y. 1998).
