Issues:
alcohol testing, corrections, drug testing.
 
Case Summary:
Daniel W. Eads, Jr., petitions for a Writ of Habeas Corpus, claiming that the parole board of West Virginia improperly revoked his parole. Eads claims his parole was revoked by a single member of the parole board, and that the law states his parole can only be revoked by the parole board as a whole. Eads also claims that his parole conditions were arbitrary and capricious.
 
Decision of lower jurisdiction:
This is the first judicial review of this case..
 
Outcome:
Eads loses. The Supreme Court of Appeals ruled the parole board's findings were "adequate." However, the court noted that it could not determine from existing records if the whole parole board had considered the Eads case. The court remanded the issue back to the parole board for additional review.
