Before BAUER, MANION, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.

Beginning in 1982, Liutauras Dargis was employed as a correctional officer with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. In February 2000, Dargis suffered a stroke while on duty. When Dargis attempted to return to work in July 2001, the Sheriff’s Office declined to reinstate him due to physical restrictions imposed by Dargis’s physician, placing him instead on leave without pay. After exhausting his administrative remedies, Dargis filed suit in federal court against the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, Cook County Sheriff Michael Sheahan, Assistant Executive Director Marcus Lyles, Executive Director Ernesto Velasco, and Cook County.*fn1 Dargis alleged, in pertinent part, that the Sheriff’s Office violated his due process rights by not providing him with a hearing prior to placing him on leave, and violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) by failing to reinstate him following his stroke. The Sheriff’s Office moved for summary judgment on all claims. The district court denied the motion on the issue of due process, entering judgment instead for Dargis on those claims, and directing the Sheriff’s Office to hold a hearing on Dargis’s employment status within thirty days. The motion was granted as to Dargis’s ADA claims, and Dargis’s remaining claims, all based in state law, were dismissed due to the district court’s decision not to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over them. Dargis now appeals, arguing that the district court erred by not proceeding to trial on the damages he sustained as a result of the due process violation, and by entering summary judgment against him on his ADA claims. Additionally, Dargis argues that the district court erred by not exercising supplemental jurisdiction over his state law claims and by denying a post-judgment motion to alter or amend the judgment. We affirm the district court.
