Before: PREGERSON, CANBY, and HAWKINS, Circuit Judges.
Lonnell R. Wideman, a Hawaii state prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's summary judgment in favor of prison officials in Wideman's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action alleging that his due process rights were violated when: (1) he was confined in administrative segregation, transferred to another prison, and confined in prehearing detention without having been given the required 24-hours written notice stating the reasons for these actions; and (2) he was denied his request for, and was not represented by, counsel substitute at his disciplinary hearing. Wideman also asserts state law claims--arising out of the same conduct--of reckless, careless, and/or intentional infliction of extreme emotional distress, mental anguish, and humiliation.
Because Wideman has no liberty interest in remaining free from administrative segregation or transfer, the district court properly ruled that appellees' failure to provide written notice of Wideman's transfer and segregation did not violate his Fourteenth Amendment right to due process. See Sandin v. Connor, 115 S.Ct. 2293 (1995). The district court also properly ruled that Wideman's lawsuit is barred to the extent that it states a cause of action for damages against either the State of Hawaii or the defendants in their official capacities.
