Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 914 F.2d 258 (6th Cir. 1990) Sept. 4, 1990

Before RYAN and ALAN E. NORRIS, Circuit Judges; WILHOIT, District Judge.* 


Plaintiff, Ernest Templeton, appeals from orders of the district court dismissing various claims brought against state officials, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

As the reasons why judgment should be entered for defendants have been articulated by the district court, the issuance of a written opinion by this court would be duplicative and serve no useful purpose. Accordingly, the dismissal of plaintiff's claim, that he was entitled to another hearing prior to being reclassified to more restrictive security classification, is affirmed upon the reasoning set out by the district court in its Memorandum and Order of August 31, 1989, and the dismissal of plaintiff's other claims is affirmed upon the reasoning set out in the magistrate's Report and Recommendation dated March 23, 1987.

The orders of the district court are affirmed.


The Honorable Henry R. Wilhoit, Jr., United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Kentucky, sitting by designation
