Johnson v. New Jersey Dep't of Corrections

April 11, 2008

DAVID JOHNSON, PETITIONER-APPELLANT,
v.
NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, DEFENDANT-RESPONDENT.



On appeal from a Final Agency Decision of the Department of Corrections.

Per curiam.

NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION

Submitted April 1, 2008

Before Judges Fuentes and Chambers.

Petitioner David Johnson is an inmate currently incarcerated at South Woods State Prison. He appeals from the decision of the Department of Corrections (DOC) classifying him as "medium custody" status. Johnson specifically challenges the point scores he received on a "reclassification instrument" used by the DOC to determine the potential security concerns posed by an individual inmate.

We need not discuss the details of how the DOC determined the particular scores, because Johnson does not have a constitutionally protected liberty interest in a reduced custody status. White v. Fauver, 219 N.J. Super. 170, 178-79 (App. Div. 1987). Petitioner's appeal lacks sufficient merit to warrant any further discussion in a written opinion. R. 2:11-3(e)(1)(D) and (E).

Affirmed.
