Elwood v. Jeter, No. 04-2253 (8th Cir. October 18, 2004)

In Elwood v. Jeter, No. 04-2253 (8th Cir. Oct. 18, 2004) (Bureau of Prison's policy of limiting prisoner placement in Community Corrections Centers to the lesser of six months or ten percent of the prisoner's sentence is based on an erroneous interpretation of 18 U.S.C. Sections 3621(b) and 3624(c) and is invalid) we have an 8th Circuit follow-up on Goldings v. Winn, No. 03-2633 (1st Cir. Sept. 9, 2004), which we first posted on here, then here, and most recently here. Elwood cites both to Goldings and a number of district courts that have also ruled likewise. These are all cases you should know to assist your clients.
