Case Number: 2021-014697


In Appeals

Appellant filed a civil rights complaint against respondents, alleging he was entitled to monetary damages because the Nevada Department of Corrections had violated his constitutional rights by improperly denying him statutory good time credits and a timely parole hearing. Respondents filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing appellant’s claim was moot because he had already had parole hearings, he had no right to a parole hearing, and respondents were entitled to qualified immunity. The district court granted respondents’ motion and appellant appealed. The court of appeals reversed and remanded the matter directing the district court to address and resolve appellant’s assertion that his rights were violated by the improper denial of statutory good time credits. The district court has considered the court of appeals’ directive and dismissed appellant’s claims. Appellant appeals the district court’s dismissal. NOA Due August 6, 2021.
