WILLIAM WATERS, JR. v. TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION, ET AL. CORRECTED OPINION Court:TCA Attorneys: William R. Waters, Jr., Only, Tennessee, Pro Se. Paul G. Summers, Attorney General and Reporter; Stephanie R. Reevers, Associate Deputy Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee. Judge: CANTRELL First Paragraph: A prison disciplinary board found a prisoner guilty of assault, and sentenced him to punitive segregation. The prisoner filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari, contending that there was no evidence that he had initiated an assault, and that the disciplinary board had ignored evidence that he was actually defending himself from a potentially deadly assault from another prisoner. The trial court found the disciplinary board's action to be arbitrary, and reversed the conviction. The State argues on appeal that the trial court's action was improper, because it should simply have ordered that the record be sent up for further consideration. We affirm the trial court. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCA/watersw.wpd
