THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
In The Court of Appeals

Michael E. Davison, Appellant,

v.

South Carolina Department of Corrections, Respondent.


Appeal From Administrative Law Court
 Ralph K. Anderson, III, Administrative Law Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2010-UP-429
Submitted October 1, 2010 – Filed October 11, 2010


AFFIRMED


Michael E. Davison, pro se, for Appellant.

Christopher D. Florian, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Michael E. Davison appeals the Administrative Law Court's (ALC) summary dismissal of his inmate grievance appeal, alleging the ALC erred in determining his allegations did not implicate a state-created liberty interest.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authority: Slezak v. S.C. Dep't of Corrs., 361 S.C. 327, 331, 605 S.E.2d 506, 508 (2004) (finding summary dismissal is "appropriate where the inmate's grievance does not implicate a state-created liberty or property interest").

AFFIRMED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.  Because Davison's grievance does not implicate a state-created liberty or property interest, we need not reach his remaining arguments.  See Futch v. McAllister Towing of Georgetown, Inc., 335 S.C. 598, 613, 518 S.E.2d 591, 598 (1999) (finding an appellate court need not discuss remaining issues when disposition of prior issue is dispositive).
