This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and was argued by plaintiff pro se and submitted by counsel for the state defendants.

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, it is now hereby ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the judgment of said District Court be and it hereby is affirmed substantially for the reasons stated in Judge Sprizzo's Orders dated November 13, 1995, and December 26, 1995, and on the record at the pretrial conference held on November 9, 1995. Plaintiff has presented no basis for overturning the district court's rulings that the state defendants are immune from suit in federal court under the Eleventh Amendment. Nor has plaintiff presented any basis for overturning the district court's dismissal for failure to show proper service of process on the defendant union.

We have considered all of plaintiff's contentions on this appeal and have found in them no basis for reversal. The judgment of the district court is affirmed.
