H. Mckenzie, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Osho Restaurant, Defendant-appellee, 967 F.2d 588 (9th Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 967 F.2d 588 (9th Cir. 1992)

Submitted April 8, 1992. *Decided June 11, 1992

Before PREGERSON, D.W. NELSON and DAVID R. THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.


H. McKenzie appeals the district court's dismissal of his case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We affirm.

McKenzie claims that the defendant, Osho Restaurant, placed a cockroach in his food because he is of African descent. He brought an action in Los Angeles County Superior Court. His claim was dismissed. He then brought an action in federal district court claiming discrimination by the restaurant and the superior court. The district court dismissed his case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

The authorities cited by McKenzie do not support his claims. Our independent efforts have not produced supporting authority. Thus, we find that federal subject matter jurisdiction does not exist.

The judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED.


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