DENVER (AP) – Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols has lost a round in his lawsuit seeking more whole grains and fresh food in his diet at a federal prison in Colorado.

A federal judge in Denver on Thursday denied Nichols’ request for a preliminary injunction. The judge says Nichols didn’t show that he faces immediate and irreparable injury.

The court hasn’t ruled on the suit itself. Nichols contends his diet consists of “unhealthy dead and refined foods” and is causing him physical problems. He also says the food violates his religious beliefs.

Nichols is serving a life sentence for conspiracy and involuntary manslaughter in the 1995 courthouse bombing that killed 168 people. Timothy McVeigh was convicted of murder and executed.
