|MILTON G. LEE,
ROBERT HAZELWOOD, Correctional Counselor at D.O.C.; OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS,
Plaintiff Milton G. Lee appeals from the district court's order dismissing his action, brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, as frivolous under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). We dismiss the appeal.
Lee, an inmate in the Oklahoma state prison system, was found guilty of five misconduct charges for violating prison rules. He was punished with disciplinary segregation, loss of earned and emergency time credits, fines totaling $225.00, and reclassification from minimum to maximum security status.
In his complaint, Lee alleged the hearing procedures violated his constitutional right to procedural due process because (1) he was found guilty without an adequate statement of reasons for the findings, (2) he was deprived of liberty by the change of his security status and the loss of his credits, and (3) he was deprived of his property because the fine was taken from his institutional draw account. He also alleged he was denied his administrative remedies because written dispositions were withheld from him thus preventing his appeal.
The district court thoroughly discussed Lee's claims in its order dismissing this action. We find no reversible error in that order. Therefore, we DISMISS this appeal as frivolous under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B) for substantially the reasons stated by the district court in its order of March 17, 1999. We consider the district court's disposition as one "prior occasion" and our dismissal of the frivolous appeal as a second "prior occasion" for purposes of the three-strikes provision set out in 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). See Jennings v. Natrona County Detention Ctr. Med. Facility, 175 F.3d 775, 780-81 (10th Cir. 1999). We remind Lee that he remains obligated to pay all installments of the deferred appellate filing fee until it is paid in full. No exception is made for dismissed appeals. See Jennings, 175 F.3d at 781; see, e.g., 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2). The mandate shall issue forthwith.
