Pursuant to Rule 24(i), Utah Rules of Appellate Procedure, I am writing to advise the Court of pertinent and significant authority regarding the above-entitled case. Malek v. Haun. 26 F.3rd 1013,1016 (10th Cir. 1994) is relevant to the discussion on pages 19 through 22 of respondent's brief. Malek discusses the effect on federal law of this Court's decision in Labrum v. Utah Board of Pardons. 870 P.2d 902 (Utah 1993) and states that Utah's parole system, even as interpreted by Labrum. does not create a liberty interest entitling an inmate to protection under the Fifth or Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. Malek v. Haun. 26 F.3rd at 1016. A copy of Malek is attached to this letter and is also being sent to Mr. Preece's attorney.
