Plaintiff, a civil detainee, appealed the district court’s dismissal of his pro se civil rights complaint, challenging the dismissal of his claim asserting that confiscation of his property violated his due process rights.
Where unauthorized deprivation of property by government officials did not violate a detainee’s procedural due process rights where the detainee had an administrative remedy to challenge the deprivation of property, the district court properly denied plaintiff’s complaint.
Judgment is affirmed.
