U-Akbar Sharrieff Bismillah, a pre-trial detainee in the San Francisco County Jail at the time of this action, appeals pro se the district court's grant of summary judgment for defendants in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action alleging violations of his First Amendment right of free exercise of religion. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We review de novo a grant of summary judgment, see Tellis v. Godinez, 5 F.3d 1314, 1316 (9th Cir.1993), and we affirm for the reasons stated in the district court's order filed November 15, 1995.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4


This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by 9th Cir.R. 36-3


Because of our disposition of this appeal, we do not consider the applicability, if any, of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, Pub.L. No. 104-134, 110 Stat. 1321 (1996), to this appeal
