Albert G. Beattie, Appellant, v. Louis S. Nelson, Warden, James W. L. Park, Administrator, San Quentin Prison, Appellees, 410 F.2d 761 (9th Cir. 1969)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 410 F.2d 761 (9th Cir. 1969) May 27, 1969

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California; Robert F. Peckham, Judge.

Albert G. Beattie, pro per.

Thomas C. Lynch, Atty. Gen., Derald E. Granberg, Louise H. Renne, Deputy Attys. Gen., San Francisco, Cal., for appellees.

Before CHAMBERS, MERRILL and ELY, Circuit Judges.


The District Court, in the exercise of its discretion, denied appellant leave to file a civil rights complaint in forma pauperis. This appeal was taken from that order. Thus the merits of appellant's claims have never been reached.

We are satisfied from the record and the reasons assigned by the court in its order that its action did not constitute abuse of discretion.
