Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 816 F.2d 682 (6th Cir. 1987) April 22, 1987

Before MERRITT and NELSON, Circuit Judges, and CONTIE, Senior Circuit Judge.


This case has been referred to a panel of this Court pursuant to Rule 9(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit. Upon examination of the briefs and records, this panel unanimously agrees that oral argument is not necessary.

On July 14, 1985, plaintiff filed a civil rights action in district court for the Western District of Michigan. Plaintiff sought injunctive relief and monetary damages arising from his involuntary commitment to a Michigan mental institution in April of 1963 through November of 1964. Due to the Michigan statute of limitations, plaintiff's action was dismissed as untimely by order entered July 22, 1986.

For the reasons set out in the district court's order of July 17, 1986, we affirm the dismissal of appellant's action. Rule 9(b), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
