I believe that you can always withdraw the contribution amount from your Roth IRA; so perhaps the J code indicated it was a withdrawal of the individuals contribution? And, of course, if he is over 59.5 and the plan was more than 5 years in existence he should be able to withdraw any amount tax free.
