Leroy Moore appeals pro se from the November 22, 1995, judgment of the District Court, dismissing his complaint against the City of Albany (N.Y.) alleging inadequate training of assistant district attorneys.
The Magistrate Judge and the District Judge correctly ruled that district attorneys, outside of New York City, are employees of a county, not a municipality. Walker v. City of New York, 974 F.2d 293 (2d Cir. 1992), cert. denied, 507 U.S. 961 (1993), concerns the special structural arrangements relevant to the counties within New York City.
