Guards find a "floater" in plaintiff's cell. No, a "floater" is not what you might think. It's a piece of property in cell that doesn't have a serial number that ties it to a particular cell. So they confiscate it.
The prisoner files a writ. Saying, essentially, "I want my [M]TV." Because they took his television and will not give it back.
The Court of Appeal says that's not a proper use of a writ. You've got to file a civil suit.
No floater for you. At least for now.
