Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 120 F.3d 269 (9th Cir. 1997)

Submitted July 14, 1997**July 17, 1997


Before: HUG, Chief Judge, KOZINSKI and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.


MEMORANDUM* 

Gerlando Peter Triscari, a New York state prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's grant of summary judgment for defendants in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action challenging the jail's mail policies. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We review de novo the district court's grant of summary judgment, Barnett v. Centoni, 31 F.3d 812, 815 (9th Cir. 1994) (per curiam), and we affirm.

Upon review of the record, we conclude that the prison's mail policy "is reasonably related to legitimate penological interests." See Turner v. Safley, 482 U.S. 78, 89 (1987). Accordingly, the district court did not err by granting summary judgment. See id.

AFFIRMED.
