Lekas v. Briley.

U.S. Appeals Court


Lekas v. Briley, 405 F.3d 602 (7th Cir. 2005). A state inmate sued several prison officials under [section] 1983, alleging constitutional violations stemming from his placement and confinement in disciplinary segregation. The district court dismissed the case and the inmate appealed. The appeals court affirmed. The appeals court held that the inmate's alleged conditions of disciplinary segregation at the prison were not so atypical and significant as to constitute a deprivation of a liberty interest. The inmate alleged that while in segregation he was unable to participate in prison programs, educational programs, work programs, and contact visits. (Pinckneyville Correction Center, Illinois)
