Miguel Angil Gonzalez, A/k/a Miguel Gonzales, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Charles H. Turner, U.S. Attorney; Mark Bailey, Defendants-appellees, 112 F.3d 516 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Before: BROWNING, THOMPSON and HAWKINS, Circuit Judges.
Federal prisoner Miguel Angil Gonzales appeals pro se the district court's sua sponte dismissal with prejudice of his action alleging that former United States Attorney Charles H. Turner and Assistant United States Attorney Mark R. Bailey acted improperly during their prosecution of Jose Canul-Gongora, who pled guilty to assisting Gonzalez by storing his cocaine on Canul-Gongora's property. We affirm the district court's conclusion that the prosecutors were entitled to absolute immunity because their challenged actions were "intimately associated with the judicial phase of the criminal process," see Imbler v. Pachtman, 424 U.S. 409, 430 (1976), and Gonzalez was not entitled to an injunction prohibiting future retaliation.
