|JAMES E. JENNINGS,
Plaintiff - Appellant,
KOHL'S DEP'T STORE,
Defendant - Appellee.
Plaintiff James E. Jennings, appearing pro se, appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendant, Kohl's Department Store, on his claims alleging violations of Title VII, defamation, and what he characterizes as genetic discrimination. The parties are familiar with the facts and the procedural history of this case, and we will not repeat them here.
We review the grant of summary judgment de novo, applying the same standard as the district court. Simms v. Okla. ex rel. Dep't of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Servs., 165 F.3d 1321, 1326 (10th Cir. 1999). "[W]e view the evidence and draw reasonable inferences therefrom in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party." Id.
Having carefully reviewed the record in that light, we find no error. We can do no better than the magistrate judge and the district court either at interpreting plaintiff's claims or explaining why they are without legal merit. We AFFIRM for substantially the reasons given by the magistrate judge in his Recommendation dated September 21, 2001, and by the district court in its order dated November 6, 2001, adopting that recommendation. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
