Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 13 F.3d 404 (10th Cir. 1993) Nov. 24, 1993

Before McKAY, Chief Judge, SETH and BARRETT, Circuit Judges.


After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.9. The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.

Danny Campbell, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, brought suit under 42 U.S.C.1983 against various prison officials. The district court dismissed his suit as legally frivolous, pursuant to 28 U.S.C.1915(d). Dismissal under 1915(d) is discretionary. We review such a dismissal for abuse of discretion. Denton v. Hernandez, 112 S. Ct. 1728, 1734 (1992); Shabazz v. Askins, 980 F.2d 1333, 1333 (10th Cir. 1992).

After reviewing the record, the Magistrate's report and recommendation, the Plaintiff's objections to that report, the district court's order and judgment, and Plaintiff's brief in this matter, we find no abuse of discretion. The district court's order dismissing Mr. Campbell's claim as legally frivolous under 28 U.S.C.1915(d) is AFFIRMED.


This order and judgment has no precedential value and shall not be cited, or used by any court within the Tenth Circuit, except for purposes of establishing the doctrines of the law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel. 10th Cir. R. 36.3
