Corrections
 
Case Summary:
C.P.M. a parolee with the New Jersey Department of Corrections, petitions the court with a motion for a preliminary injunction. The parolee seeks relief from an order from the state parole board. The board ruled that the state must notify the parolee's new employer that he had been convicted of kidnapping, aggravated assault and other serious offenses. The parolee had served 10 years of his sentence and had earned a college degree.
 
Decision of lower jurisdiction:
The state's parole board ruled that it had an obligation to inform the parolee's employer of his criminal record. The parolee now appeals.
 
Outcome:
The parolee wins. The United States District Court for the District of New Jersey reversed the decision of the parole board. The court reasoned that the parolee was a good candidate for parole and that his chances for success would be damaged by the board's actions.
