Appellant filed a 42 U.S.C. 1983 civil rights action in the district court asserting four federal constitutional claims and one state law claim, alleging that, while he was an inmate in the state of Wyoming under the supervision and control of the Wyoming Department of Corrections (DOC), he was deprived of his personal property, which violated his right to due process and caused him injury. The district court granted summary judgment on all claims for the DOC. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not err in granting summary judgment in favor of the DOC.
