Submitted Oct. 30, 1989. *Decided Dec. 14, 1989
Before SNEED, KOZINSKI, and DAVID R. THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.
Appellant Steven Shaw appeals the District Court's denial of his motion to amend or for relief from a written order dismissing the case for lack of personal jurisdiction and for failure to state a claim pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b) (6). Appellant does not challenge the district court's holding that it lacked jurisdiction over the person of the defendant. As a result, the dismissal for failure to state a claim must be deemed to be without prejudice.
