Sacora v. Thomas, No. 10-35553

Challenge to Bureau of Prisons Policies

In Sacora v. Thomas, No. 10-35553, a habeas corpus action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 2241 challenging the policies by which the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) placed inmates in community correctional facilities, also known as residential re-entry centers, the court affirmed the district court's partial denial of the petition where the BOP's policies violated neither the statutory provisions that they implement nor the Administrative Procedure Act.

As the court wrote:  "Tim Ray Sacora, Larry L. Beaman, and Todd Sonobe (collectively "Petitioners") brought this habeas corpus action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 challenging the policies by which the Bureau of Prisons ("BOP") places inmates in community correctional facilities, also known as residential re-entry centers ("RRCs")."
