Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 963 F.2d 381 (9th Cir. 1992) Submitted Dec. 6, 1991. *Decided May 14, 1992

Before SCHROEDER and KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges, and REED, District Judge.** 


Uribe's complaint does not contain a "short and plain statement of the claim" as required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(a) (2) and therefore does not provide fair notice. See Jones v. Community Redevelopment Agency, 733 F.2d 646, 649 (9th Cir. 1984). Accordingly, the district court did not abuse its discretion by dismissing the complaint with leave to amend. See Gillibeau v. City of Richmond, 417 F.2d 426, 431 (9th Cir. 1969).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4


The Honorable Edward C. Reed, Jr., United States District Judge, District of Nevada, sitting by designation
