UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
|TOMMY D. BURLEIGH,
Plaintiff - Appellant,
UTAH BOARD OF PARDONS & PAROLE,
Defendant - Appellee.
After examining the briefs and the 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.
This is a pro se state prisoner 42 U.S.C. § 1983 civil rights appeal. Mr. Burleigh sought monetary damages and injunctive relief from Appellee Utah Board of Pardons and Parole alleging that his right to due process was violated by almost all of the Board's original parole grant procedures. In particular, he challenged the Board's procedures for determining original hearing dates, conducting parole hearings, and granting parole. Mr. Burleigh further claimed that the Utah Board of Pardons unconstitutionally discriminates on the basis of religion. The district court dismissed Mr. Burleigh's claims pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b)(1) as frivolous and for failure to state a claim.
After a thorough review of the briefs and the record, for substantially the same reasons set forth in the district court's well-reasoned August 13, 2002, Order, we hold that no relief is available to Mr. Burleigh pursuant to § 1983.
The decision of the trial court is AFFIRMED.
