Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
Pg: 3 of 3
Tracey Terrell Grady appeals the district court’s order granting Defendants
summary judgment in Grady’s 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) action and dismissing the action
due to Grady’s failure to exhaust administrative remedies. We have reviewed the record
and find no reversible error. Although Grady argues that prison officials thwarted his
efforts to pursue an institutional grievance pertaining to the challenged incident, the
district court properly rejected that contention as inconsistent with both the record and
Grady’s earlier version of the facts. See Ross v. Blake, __ U.S. __, 136 S. Ct. 1850,
1858-60 (2016) (clarifying when administrative remedies are deemed unavailable).
Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court.
Williams, No. 5:16-ct-03027-D (E.D.N.C. Jan. 22, 2018).
See Grady v.
We dispense with oral
argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the
materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
