PER CURIAM

Plaintiff appeals from the trial court's dismissal of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus. He challenges a 1997 order of the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision deferring his projected parole release date. We conclude that the trial court correctly rejected plaintiff's arguments on the merits of that issue. See generally Hamel v. Johnson, 173 Or App 448, 25 P3d 314 (2001); Weidner v. Armenakis, 154 Or App 12, 959 P2d 623 (1998), withdrawn by order July 13, 1998, reasoning reaffirmed and readopted in Merrill v. Johnson, 155 Or App 295, 964 P2d 284, rev den 328 Or 40 (1998).

Plaintiff also asserts that the trial court erred in imposing $475 in costs for his court-appointed counsel. We reverse the award of costs for court-appointed counsel and remand for reconsideration in light of Bacote v. Johnson, 333 Or 28, 35 P3d 1019 (2001).

Award of costs for court-appointed counsel reversed and remanded; otherwise affirmed.
