Defendants - Appellees.
Appellant Rodney Alan Gunderson, a prisoner of the State of Wyoming appearing pro se, appeals from a jury verdict in favor of appellees on his claims of excessive force, unconstitutional conditions of confinement, and lack of access to the courts filed under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Appellant's claims arose when appellees restrained him to cut his hair in accordance with prison policy and then placed him in administrative segregation immediately after the haircut because of his resistance. Appellant asserted that he resisted the haircut based on his religious belief that he should not cut his hair.
On appeal, appellant makes arguments related to default, discovery, witnesses, judicial partiality, and housing during the trial. We have reviewed the briefs in light of the record on appeal and conclude that appellant's claims of error are waived or are without merit.
The judgment is AFFIRMED. Appellant is reminded that he is obligated to continue making partial payments until the filing fee is paid in full. Appellant's motion for recusal of Judge Brimmer and Magistrate Judge Beaman is denied. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
