United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.

Submitted*  Feb. 22, 1989.Decided March 14, 1989.

Before MERRILL, EUGENE A. WRIGHT and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.


Rodney Stich appeals pro se the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendants in a civil rights action arising out of a divorce action brought in California Superior Court by Stich's wife.

The judgment must be affirmed. The district court did not have jurisdiction to hear a core domestic relations case in which "a federal court is asked to grant a divorce or annulment, determine support payments, or award custody of a child." Csibi v. Fustos, 670 F.2d 134, 137 (9th Cir. 1982).



The panel finds this case appropriate for submission without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a) and Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4
