US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 16 F.3d 417 (10th Cir. 1993)

Dec. 27, 1993

Before MOORE, ANDERSON, and KELLY, Circuit Judges.


This is an appeal from the dismissal of actions filed by plaintiff, pro se, against a host of defendants and an order of sanctions entered subsequently. The actions were rejected by the district court largely on the ground that they were matters previously litigated through appeal to this court. The district court further sanctioned plaintiff by barring him from refiling these claims pro se without the permission of the district court. We have examined the record and find no error. The orders and judgments appealed from are AFFIRMED substantially for the reasons stated by the district court.


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
