302.02 Annotation Under s. 801.50 (3), a prisoner's civil action against a superintendent was properly venued in Dane County. Irby v. Young, 139 Wis. 2d 279, 407 N.W.2d 314 (Ct. App. 1987).
302.02 Annotation Although review of disciplinary proceedings conducted by a private, out-of-state, contract prison may proceed in the state where the prison is located, when disciplined inmates were returned to Wisconsin and Tennessee courts refused to review the cases, because no statute allowed judicial review of prison disciplinary decisions applied to the inmates, Wisconsin courts could review the disciplinary decisions by certiorari. State ex rel. Curtis v. Litscher, 2002 WI App 172, 256 Wis. 2d 787, 650 N.W.2d 43, 01-1804.
302.02 Annotation Sub. (3t) deprives Wisconsin courts of competency to entertain certiorari actions seeking review of out-of-state prison disciplinary decisions unless a petitioner can show a denial of judicial review on jurisdictional or competency grounds in the state where the disciplinary action occurred. Allowing the courts of other states to resolve disputes over prison disciplinary actions within their borders is entirely rational and not a violation of equal protection. Myers v. Swenson, 2004 WI App 224, 277 Wis. 2d 749, 691 N.W.2d 749, 03-2406. See also Ponchik v. Bradley, 2004 WI App 226, 277 Wis. 2d 768, 690 N.W.2d 860, 03-2958.

302.045(3m)(b) (b) Upon being informed by the department under par. (a) that an inmate whom the court sentenced under s. 973.01 has successfully completed the challenge incarceration program, the court shall modify the inmate's bifurcated sentence as follows:
302.045(3m)(b)1. 1.

302.045 Annotation While an offender must meet the eligibility requirements of sub.

State v. Steele, 2001 WI App 160, 246 Wis. 2d 744, 632 N.W.2d 112, 00-2864.
302.045 Annotation Once the trial court has made an eligibility determination, the final placement determination is made by the department. This section provides that if an inmate meets all of the program eligibility criteria, the department “may" place that inmate in the program. It is not the sentencing court's function to classify an inmate to a particular institution or program. State v. Schladweiler, 2009 WI App 177, 322 Wis. 2d 642, 777 N.W.2d 114, 08-3119.
