The appeal has been referred to a panel pursuant to Rule 9(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit. Upon examination of the certified record and plaintiff's brief, this panel unanimously agrees that oral argument is not needed. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a).

Seeking damages, plaintiff claimed that he was convicted of escape in violation of his right to a speedy trial and the Interstate on Detainers Act.

Upon consideration, we affirm the district court's judgment for the reasons stated in its order of dismissal filed October 5, 1987. Rule 9(b) (5), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
