Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
1. Did the district court err when it determined that the doctrine of exhaustion of remedies applied to this case, even though there is no precedent for applying this doctrine, exhaustion does not apply to due process claims, and any attempt at exhaustion would be futile?
2. Did the district court err when it determined that the due process claim failed as a matter of law when the district court acknowledged the allegations of bias of a decision maker in the process and when the district court improperly applied a dismissal standard to this claim?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
I. Did the District Court correctly find that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over Plaintiff's action.
