|ROBERT LESLIE RICE,
WILEY CHRISTOPHER, Deputy District Attorney, Mesa County; ERIN TOBIN, Paralegal Extradition Specialist, District Attorney's Office; FRANK J. DANIELS, District Attorney, Grand Junction; RIECKE CLAUSEN, Sheriff, Mesa County, Grand Junction, Colorado,
(D.C. No. 97-Z-1801)
Robert Leslie Rice filed this civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. §1983
alleging that defendants were liable for unlawfully detaining him when he should have been permitted to obtain his release by posting a bond. Based on the recommendation of the magistrate judge, the district court granted summary judgment for defendants. Mr. Rice appeals.
The recommendation of the magistrate judge details chronologically the events whereby California initially filed a parole violator warrant against Mr. Rice as a fugitive on November 30, 1994. This matter was ultimately dismissed and seems to be the basis for Mr. Rice's confusion. Subsequently the Governor of California filed a new warrant on March 21, 1996, requesting the extradition of Mr. Rice. The Colorado Governor issued an Extradition Warrant on May 13, 1996. It is this latter warrant that precluded defendants from releasing Mr. Rice.
For the reasons set out in the magistrate judge's recommendation, we are persuaded that the district court properly granted summary judgment for defendants. Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
