|GEORGE ALLEN WILLIAMS,
CITY OF COLORADO SPRINGS; THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF EL PASO COUNTY; FOURTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF COLORADO,
Plaintiff seeks review of the district court's order granting defendants' motions to dismiss his action, brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and alleging various violations of his constitutional rights. Essentially he claimed he was subjected to several warrantless arrests in his home; that subsequent bail was excessive; that he was denied access to the courts (in part because of an inadequate law library); and that he was denied court-appointed counsel and a twelve person jury in municipal court in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He also claims he was denied the free exercise of his religion and the right to protect himself from aggravating his disability. He further complained of being strapped to an immobilizing board and being housed with convicted felons.
The district court carefully considered plaintiff's claims, accepting those well-pleaded allegations as true and construing them in the light most favorable to him. The court ultimately concluded that plaintiff had failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.
Upon de novo review, see GFF Corp. v. Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc., 130 F.3d 1381, 1384 (10th Cir. 1997), we affirm the district court for substantially the reasons set forth in the court's order of August 31, 2000, dismissing this action.
AFFIRMED. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
Entered for the Court
John C. Porfilio
