301.21 Annotation That this section does not, apart from the authority to contract for out-of-state placements, grant specific authority to transfer prisoners to out-of-state prisons does not mean that the department of corrections is without authority to so transfer prisoners without their consent. Prisoners do not have a constitutionally protected liberty interest in not being transferred from one prison to another. Evers v. Sullivan, 2000 WI App 144, 237 Wis. 2d 759, 615 N.W.2d 680, 00-0127.
301.21 Annotation The Department of Corrections has the authority under sub. (2m) to delegate to employees at a private correctional facility in another state the responsibility for conducting reviews and making recommendations on the security classifications and program assignments of Wisconsin prisoners incarcerated in that facility. State ex rel. Treat v. Puckett, 2002 WI App 58, 252 Wis. 2d 404, 643 N.W.2d 515, 00-2712.
301.21 Annotation The state is not required to use the extradition process whenever and wherever prisoners are transported through noncontracting states on their way to incarceration in a contracting state. State ex rel. Jones v. Smith, 2002 WI App 94, 253 Wis. 2d 712, 643 N.W.2d 548, 01-1673.
301.21 Annotation The reference to “provisions of law and regulation concerning the confinement of persons" in sub. (2m) (b) means the conditions of confinement and procedures used in the out-of-state institution. Sentence credit under the law of the state where the prison is located are not laws concerning confinement but are an element of that state's sentencing system and do not apply to a prisoner serving a Wisconsin sentence. State ex rel. Griffin v. Litscher, 2003 WI App 60, 261 Wis. 2d 694, 659 N.W.2d 455, 02-1704.
301.21 Annotation Transferring inmates from Wisconsin prisons to out-of-state facilities does not violate state law. Lambert v. Sullivan, 35 F. Supp. 2d 1131 (1999).
301.21 Annotation A prisoner has no liberty interest in avoiding transfer to any prison, whether within or without the state. Berdine v. Sullivan, 161 F. Supp. 2d 972 (2001).
301.21 Annotation A Wisconsin prisoner's income while imprisoned in an out-of-state institution is not subject to department of corrections rules, but instead is subject to the rules of the host state. Doty v. Doyle, 182 F. Supp. 2d 750 (2002).
