PER CURIAM: * The judgment of the district court is affirmed for the reasons explained in detail by the court. Despite that careful 25-page disposition of all of the plaintiff’s claims, we now have 50 pages of briefs that provide only the same allegations and new legal references but no support for plaintiff’s claims. The problem for the plaintiff is the complete lack of any evidence of racial or gender Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 13-20761 Document: 00512693824 Page: 2 Date Filed: 07/10/2014 No. 13-20761 discrimination or unequal treatment, and of any basis for the claim of procedural due process denial. No evidence connects different experience of other teachers with the claims of discrimination and due process. And as for due process, the plaintiff was given legal notice of non-renewal of his contract, and he was given process by the Board of the District and the Commissioner of Education. AFFIRMED. 2
