Renchenski v. Piazza, 07-3530

In an inmate's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 suit alleging that his forced participation in sex offender treatment therapy violates several constitutional rights, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendants on the inmate's procedural due process claim is reversed and remanded where, because the inmate was never charged with nor convicted of a sex offense, the procedure he was afforded during his trial and conviction for the 1982 murder cannot serve as the sufficient procedural safeguard for Fourteenth Amendment purposes.
