LeRoy Reisch appeals the trial court’s order dismissing his petition for writ of certiorari as untimely filed under the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA). Reisch argues that the PLRA violates his right to equal protection because it requires prisoners in Wisconsin to file petitions for certiorari review within forty-five days, but does not require those incarcerated outside of Wisconsin to file within this truncated deadline. He also contends that the PLRA violates his right to substantive due process. We reject these arguments and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
