McEachin v. Beard.

U.S. District Court

CONFISCATION

McEachin v. Beard, 319 F.Supp.2d 510 (E.D.Pa. 2004). A state inmate filed a [section] 1983 action alleging his rights were violated when his personal property was confiscated. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants. The court held that prison officials' confiscation of the inmate's personal property without a prior hearing did not violate the inmate's due process rights, even if the inmate had some difficulty in having his grievance heard, where the prison grievance procedure provided the inmate with adequate and meaningful post-deprivation processes, and the inmate's difficulties were the result of his own failure to follow proper administrative procedure.
