Martinez brought both an original and an amended complaint asserting claims under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against the Governor of Colorado and various officials and employees of the Colorado Department of Corrections. Martinez brought numerous claims generally fitting within the following categories: (1) limitations on his right to access legal materials violated both his Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights; (2) he has been retaliated against by prison officials for filing a previous civil rights suit; (3) he has been subjected to flawed prison disciplinary hearings; (4) he has been subject to verbal and physical harassment; and (5) he has been deprived of his property without due process of law. In a thorough order, the district court dismissed Martinez's access-to-the-courts claim and prison-disciplinary-proceedings claims as legally frivolous pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(i). The district court dismissed the remainder of Martinez's claims without prejudice for failure to exhaust prison administrative remedies pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1997e(a).
The matter is before this court on Martinez's appeal of the district court's order of dismissal and his request to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis. This court grants Martinez's request to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis. Martinez is reminded that he is under a continuing obligation to make partial payments of the appellate filing fee until that fee is paid in full. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b). We have reviewed the record, the appellate briefs, and the applicable law and conclude that the dismissal of Martinez's § 1983 complaint was proper. Accordingly, the district court's order dismissing Martinez's complaint is AFFIRMED for substantially the reasons stated in the district court's order dated December 23, 2004.
