US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 437 F.2d 956 (3d Cir. 1971) Submitted on Briefs February 16, 1971
Decided March 4, 1971

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania; Herbert P. Sorg, Judge.

Kenneth W. Owens, pro se.

J. Shane Creamer, Atty. Gen., Joseph Martin Gelman, Sp. Asst. Atty. Gen., Pittsburgh, Pa. (Fred Speaker, Atty. Gen., Harrisburg, Pa., on the brief), for appellees.

Before FREEDMAN, SEITZ and ROSENN, Circuit Judges.



We have examined with care the contentions made on this appeal in forma pauperis from the dismissal of petitioner's complaint under the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, for failure to set forth sufficient facts to support a claim for relief. We find the appeal to be without merit.

The judgment of the district court will be affirmed.
