KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections former food-service provider by a prisoner angered when peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were served after breakfast waffles ran out.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1TTGIqc ) Friday that 44-year-old Iatonda Taylor also complained in the lawsuit that prisoners at Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Ionia County were served leftover peach cobbler instead of bread pudding.

The lawsuit said the menu substitutions for waffles put Bellamy Creek at risk for a prisoner riot in May.

U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney in Kalamazoo said Taylor didn’t show his constitutional rights were violated.

The newspaper reports that Taylor was convicted in the 2006 stabbing death of his brother in Grand Rapids. He is serving life in prison.
