TOMMY G. THOMPSON,(*) Secretary, Health and Human Services; ANN M. VENEMAN,(2) Secretary, U.S. Department of Agriculture; LARRY G. MASSANARI,(3) Acting Commissioner of Social Security Administration; JERRY DAVIDSON, Director of the Grady County Oklahoma Department of Human Services,


No. 01-6035

(D.C. No. 99-CV-1801-R)

(W.D. Okla.)


Before EBEL, KELLY, and LUCERO, Circuit Judges.

After examining the briefs 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.

Plaintiff-appellant Susan E. Early appeals from the district court's order (1) dismissing her complaint against the defendants pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) and 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e); (2) denying her motion to set her case for jury trial; and (3) denying her motion for leave to amend her complaint to add an additional defendant. Having carefully reviewed the record and the briefs filed in this court in light of the applicable law, we have determined that the district court's order should be affirmed.

The judgment of the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma is therefore AFFIRMED for substantially the same reasons set forth in the district court's order of December 22, 2000. Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED. Her petition for writ of mandamus is DENIED. All other pending motions are DENIED.

Entered for the Court

Paul J. Kelly, Jr.
