Louis Ortega, Appellant, v. A. Boyd Puccinelli, Appellee, 444 F.2d 530 (9th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 444 F.2d 530 (9th Cir. 1971) June 15, 1971

Louis Ortega, in pro. per.

A. Boyd Puccinelli, in pro. per.

Before CHAMBERS, HAMLEY and MERRILL, Circuit Judges.


The dismissal of appellant's "Petition for a Writ of Prohibition" against a bail bondsman is affirmed.

Under 28 U.S.C. § 1651(a), a writ of prohibition may issue only in aid of the jurisdiction of the issuing court. Stafford v. Superior Court, 272 F.2d 407, 409 (9th Cir. 1959). Appellant's petition does not assert any underlying action concerning which the district court would have jurisdiction.
