Before BROWN, Chief Judge, and THORNBERRY and AINSWORTH, Circuit judges.
Pursuant to our remand,1 the district court for the Eastern District of Texas has examined Appellant's complaint in his action before the district court for the Western District of Oklahoma. The district court for the Eastern District of Texas again concluded that Appellant's claim was identical to that dismissed in the Western District of Oklahoma. We affirm, concluding that the doctrine of direct estoppel bars the claim.2
