Failure to State Claim Dismissal Reviewed De Novo

The plaintiff's claim that he was denied due process by lack of notice is rejected; exactly why is not stated. Violation of prison rules concerning disciplinary hearings does not deny due process. The record showed some evidence to support the charge.

The court reviews a sua sponte dismissal for failure to state a claim under the same de novo standard as a Rule 12(b)(6) dismissal. See: Black v. Warren, 134 F.3d 732 (5th Cir. 1998).
