Notes of Decisions

Place­ment in prison Intensive Manage­ment Unit does not raise issues subject to writ of habeas corpus. Troxel v. Maass, 120 Or App 397, 853 P2d 294 (1993)

Allega­tion that peti­tioner was being subjected to ongoing and periodical assaults by guards met min­i­mum require­ments for habeas corpus jurisdic­tion. Schafer v. Maass, 122 Or App 518, 858 P2d 474 (1993)

Civil rights lawsuit for tort damages and injunctive relief is not adequate alternative remedy for peti­tioner alleging unconstitu­tional im­pris­on­­ment or restraint of per­son. Barrett v. Belleque, 344 Or 91, 176 P3d 1272 (2008)

Director of Depart­ment of Correc­tions is proper defendant in peti­tion for writ of habeas corpus by transferred inmate in physical custody of receiving state pursuant to Interstate Correc­tions Compact under ORS 421.284 (Western Interstate Corrections Compact) because sending state retains sole authority to remove inmate from condi­tions of which inmate complains and inmate remains in constructive custody of sending state. Taylor v. Peters, 360 Or 460, 383 P3d 279 (2016)

Notes of Decisions
