|THE BOARD OF COUNTY
COMMISSIONERS OF THE
COUNTY OF GILPIN, COLORADO;
GILPIN COUNTY DEPUTY
SHERIFF JOHN BAYNE, in his
individual capacity; GILPIN
COUNTY SHERIFF BRUCE
HARTMAN, in his official capacity,
ROBERT NELSON ENTRUP,
We review the district court's grant of summary judgment de novo, and we review its denial of the Rule 59(e) motion for an abuse of discretion. See Anderson v. Coors Brewing Co., 181 F.3d 1171, 1175 (10th Cir. 1999) (summary judgment); Phelps v. Hamilton, 122 F.3d 1309, 1324 (10th Cir. 1997) (Rule 59(e) motion). Based upon our review of the parties' briefs, the record, and the pertinent law, we conclude the district court did not err in entering summary judgment against Mr. Entrup on the conversion claim or in denying his Rule 59(e) motion.
Therefore, we AFFIRM the district court for substantially the reasons set forth in its orders of October 28, 1999, and November 24, 1999. Mr. Entrup's motion for leave to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis is GRANTED.
Entered for the Court
Paul J. Kelly, Jr.
*. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
1. 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)(2); 10th Cir. R. 34.1(G). The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.
