Prisons — equal protection

Harlan Richards appeals an order dismissing his federal civil rights action against a prison official based upon the reclassification of Richards’ custody status, and an additional order denying reconsideration. The circuit court concluded that Richards’ complaint failed to allege facts upon which relief could be granted under either of his two legal theories. For the reasons discussed below, we conclude that Richards’ complaint did state an equal protection claim upon which relief could be granted. Accordingly, we reverse the decision of the circuit court and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. This opinion will not be published.
