PER CURIAM.


For the reasons stated in the district court order, appellant's complaint properly was dismissed for want of federal subject matter jurisdiction. Further, we perceive no error or abuse of discretion in the district court's summary rejection of appellant's post-dismissal motions for reconsideration, recusal, and amendment of the complaint. And we find no merit in appellant's additional contentions regarding discovery, sanctions, and attorney conduct.

The judgment is affirmed. See 1st Cir. Loc. R. 27.1. Appellant's motions for default and expedited review are denied, as are his requests for costs and for publication of this opinion.
