CHRISTOPHER HEFFLIN, PETITIONER,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Petitioner brings this habeas corpus action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. In this action, Petitioner challenges the manner in which the Bureau of Prisons interprets 18 U.S.C. § 3624(b) to calculate good conduct credit. However, the Seventh Circuit has upheld the Bureau's method of calculating good conduct credit. White v. Scibana, 390 F.3d 997, 1003 (7th Cir. 2004). See also Pacheco-Camacho v. Hood, 272 F.3d 1266 (9th Cir. 2001).
Therefore, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is DENIED, and this action is DISMISSED with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED this 2nd day of February, 2006.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
