Publisher Description

In a civil rights suit, appellant, a Dallas County prisoner, sought (1) an injunction against continuing to imprison him in
solitary confinement, (2) a declaratory judgment that the Dallas County policy of placing inmates in solitary confinement
is unconstitutional, and (3) damages of $25,000 plus $250 for every day his illegal confinement continued. The district court properly treated the petition for release from solitary confinement as a petition for writ of habeas corpus
and dismissed for failure to exhaust available state remedies. See Johnson v. Walker, 5 Cir., 1963, 317 F.2d 418. On the exhaustion
question, see 28 U.S.C.A. § 2254; Stepp v. Beto, 5 Cir., 1968, 398 F.2d 814; State of Texas v. Payton, 5 Cir., 1968, 390 F.2d
261.
