Bingham v. Thomas

Bingham v. Thomas, 2011 WL 3862101 (11th Cir. Sept. 2, 2011): A prisoner’s claim that he was denied aspirin was properly dismissed as frivolous, where there was no allegation of a medical condition or injury that resulted from being denied the aspirin. Also proper was the dismissal of the prisoner’s claim that he was denied his due process rights when his request for a copy of the prison rule book was denied. The court held that a prison grievance procedure does not provide an inmate with a constitutionally protected liberty interest in access to that procedure.
