Roger Frith, self-represented, Fargo, N.D., appellant.
Jacqueline Sue Anderson, Fargo, N.D., for appellee.

[¶1] Roger Frith appeals from a district court judgment affirming an administrative law judge's order, which affirmed Workforce Safety and Insurance's order denying his claim for benefits. On appeal, Frith raises numerous issues, including that he was denied a fair hearing of his injury claim because his employer, DMI Industries, Inc., reported false and misleading information and made false statements in connection with his claim; that DMI did not comply with workers compensation statutes by failing to produce the painter's name who sprayed paint that allegedly injured him; that DMI had exposed him to harmful, toxic, and dangerous air in its production facility; that WSI violated his right to a fair hearing when WSI relied on false and misleading air test reports in denying his claim; and that a reasonable person reasonably could conclude that Frith proved that he had a compensable injury. The district court judgment is summarily affirmed under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(5).
