Clyde Piggie v. Cotton, 344 F.3d 674 (7th Cir. 2003)
Issue/Holding: Requirement of certificate of appealability doesn’t apply to habeas challenge to state disciplinary proceeding, citing Walker v. O’Brien, 216 F.3d 626 (7th Cir. 2002).
Rule reaffirmed: Edward D. Anderson v. Benik, No. 05-2323, 12/20/06 But for another circuit’s rejection of this approach, creating a potentially cert-worthy split, see Medberry v. Crosby, footnote 10, 11th Cir. No. 02-11072, 11/25/03.
