Unpublished Opinion No. 2011-UP-575
Submitted December 1, 2011 – Filed December 20, 2011   


AFFIRMED


Henry W. Martin, Jr., pro se.

Christopher D. Florian, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Henry W. Martin, Jr. appeals the Administrative Law Court's (ALC) dismissal of his administrative appeal from the Department of Corrections.  He argues the ALC erred in dismissing his grievance regarding access to the prison law library for photocopies of caselaw.[1]  We affirm[2] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authority: Medlock v. One 1985 Jeep Cherokee VIN 1JCWB7828FT129001, 322 S.C. 127, 132, 470 S.E.2d 373, 376 (1996) ("The appellant has the burden of providing this court with a sufficient record upon which to make a decision.").

AFFIRMED.

HUFF, PIEPER, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


[1] Martin's remaining arguments are unpreserved for our review because they were never ruled on by the ALC.  Al-Shabazz v. State, 338 S.C. 354, 379, 527 S.E.2d 742, 755 (2000) ("[I]ssues or arguments that were not raised to and ruled on by the [ALC] ordinarily are not preserved for review.").

[2] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
