Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
Before BOWMAN, WOLLMAN, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.
Arkansas inmate Kenneth Lee Derring appeals the district court's1 order dismissing, without prejudice, his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Having carefully reviewed the record, we conclude the district court's decision was correct. See Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Pub. L. No. 104-134, § 803(d), 110 Stat. 1321-66, 1321-71 (1996) (codified at 42 U.S.C.A. § 1997e(a) (West Supp.1997)) ("No action shall be brought with respect to prison conditions under section 1983 of this title, or any other Federal law, by a prisoner ... until such administrative remedies as are available are exhausted"). Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47A(a).
The Honorable Susan Webber Wright, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas
