Trial court order granting relief on a habeas corpus petition is reversed where: 1) the prison warden's notice of appeal was timely filed under California Rules of Court 8.308(a); and 2) the court erred in determining defendant was entitled to additional work/school performance points for the time he did not actually participate in any work, school, or vocational program, as the department's interpretation of the applicable regulation and decision to deny defendant the additional performance points he sought has a rational basis and was not arbitrary, capricious, or irrational and thus must be upheld.
