No. 99-1170

D. Ct. No. 98-N-61)

(D. Colo.)


Before TACHA, McKAY, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.

After examining the briefs and the appellate record, this three-judge panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not be of material assistance in 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.

Plaintiff Schroder filed this appeal arguing that the district court erred in accepting the magistrate judge's recommendation to dismiss his complaint. After reviewing the record, we find that the magistrate judge extended every benefit to Schroder with its lenient interpretation of his pro se complaint. The magistrate judge thoroughly considered plaintiff's arguments and found that even accepting his allegations as true, Schroder had failed to state a claim on which relief could be granted. We AFFIRM the district court's order to dismiss plaintiff's case and award defendants their attorney fees and costs for substantially the same reasons stated in the magistrate judge's recommendation. We GRANT Schroder's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
