(D. C. No. 98-CV-29-C)
ORDER AND JUDGMENT(*)
Before TACHA, McKAY, and MURPHY,Circuit Judges.
After examining Plaintiff-Appellant's brief 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.
Proceeding pro se, Plaintiff, a state prisoner, brought an action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 seeking damages for six alleged claims of constitutional violations. Read liberally, they are:
The matter was referred to a magistrate judge who filed a detailed Report and Recommendation stating that each claim should be dismissed as legally frivolous pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B). The district court reviewed the report, Plaintiff's objections, and the complaint de novo. It adopted the Report and Recommendation and dismissed the complaint. We have made the same review and conclude that the Report and Recommendation is correct.
On appeal, Plaintiff also complains that the district court should have permitted him to amend his complaint rather than dismiss it. We find no merit to this claim.
For the reasons stated in the magistrate judge's Report and Recommendation, we dismiss the appeal as frivolous under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(I). The district court's dismissal of the complaint and our dismissal of the appeal count as two strikes under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). See Jennings v. Natrona County Detention Ctr. Med. Facility, F.3d , 1999 WL 248634, at *4 (10th Cir. 1999).
