This is a pro se state prisoner § 1983 civil rights appeal. In 1999, Mr. Klein sought monetary damages, declaratory, and injunctive relief for alleged constitutional violations associated with prison disciplinary proceedings instituted against him. In December 1999, the district court dismissed the claims without prejudice to the extent that they requested expungement of disciplinary action from his record, ruling that such claims should have been brought pursuant to § 2254. To the extent that Mr. Klein sought monetary and injunctive relief, the district court dismissed the complaint as legally frivolous.
Mr. Klein filed three motions to reconsider, all of which the district court denied. We affirmed the district court's decision on appeal. Klein v. McClaury, No. 00-1065, 2000 WL 1005238 (10th Cir. July 20, 2000). On March 4, 2002, Mr. Klein filed a motion seeking relief from judgment. The district court denied the motion as moot. Mr. Klein appeals to this court.
As detailed above, the district court originally dismissed Mr. Klein's claims on December 15, 1999. Then, the district court thrice denied Mr. Klein's motions to reconsider. We subsequently affirmed the dismissal. Id. The present action is moot. After a thorough review of the brief and the record, and for substantially the same reasons set forth in the district court's March 6, 2002, Minute Order, we hold that no relief is available to Mr. Klein pursuant to § 1983.
The decision of the trial court is AFFIRMED. Appellant's motion to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee is GRANTED. We remind Appellant that he must continue making partial payments on court fees and costs previously assessed until such have been paid in full.
