A prisoner who had been granted parole, but was still in a prison facility awaiting the execution of the grant of parole, was still subject to facility rules, and a disciplinary report issued against him was valid. (It was for not returning by curfew. The plaintiff says he was in the hospital, having had a heart attack. The court says nothing about this.)
The plaintiff failed to offer any evidence supporting his claim that the disciplinary report was retaliatory, even though it came only a few days after he filed a grievance. The grievance was directed against the facility director, not the officer, and concerned facility conditions. See: Johnson v. Rendell, 56 F.Supp.2d 547 (E.D.Pa. 1999).
