Deonta Jerome HICKS, Plaintiff - Appellant, v. Wendell W. PIXLEY, Warden; Harold Clarke, Director of Virginia Department of Corrections; Dave Robinson, Chief of Corrections, Defendants - Appellees.
Decided: March 13, 2020
Before NIEMEYER and AGEE, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge.
Deonta Jerome Hicks, Appellant Pro Se.
Deonta Jerome Hicks, a Virginia inmate, appeals the district court's order granting Defendants summary judgment in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2018) civil rights action in which Hicks alleged violations of his First Amendment right to free exercise of religion and of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000cc to 2000cc-5 (2018). We have reviewed the record, in conjunction with the arguments raised by Hicks on appeal, and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm the district court's order. Hicks v. Pixley, No. 1:16-cv-00189-CMH-IDD, 2019 WL 4576269 (E.D. Va. Sept. 20, 2019). We deny Hicks’ pending motions to amend his appeal, for the appointment of investigative services, to compel Defendants to disclose financial information and related evidence, and for injunctive relief. 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.
