Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 966 F.2d 702 (D.C. Cir. 1992)

May 8, 1992


Before WALD, D.H. GINSBURG and SENTELLE, Circuit Judges.

ORDER

PER CURIAM.


Upon consideration of the request for appointment of counsel, and the motion for summary affirmance and the response thereto, it is

ORDERED that the request for appointment of counsel be denied. The court concludes that counsel would not assist it in resolving the claims raised by appellant. See D.C. Circuit Handbook of Practice and Internal Procedures 29 (1987). It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the motion for summary affirmance be granted substantially for the reasons stated by the district court in its memorandum filed May 24, 1991. Appellant's state law claims are dismissed without prejudice, to be refiled, if at all, in the appropriate court.

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
