The U.S. Supreme Court, in Edwards v. Balisok, 520 U.S. 641, 137 L. Ed. 2d 906, 117 S. Ct. 1584 (Wash. 1997) held an inmate's due process claim for a "false disciplinary" under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 not actionable.
In prison disciplinary hearings, due process of law requires that the accused receive: advance, written notice of the charges; a written statement by the factfinder as to the evidence upon which it relies as well as to the reasons for the action taken; and the right to present evidence, subject to reasonable restrictions necessary to maintain order within the penal institution. See Wolff, 418 U.S. at 563-572; Thomas, 862 S.W.2d at 721-22.
