Henry Anderson, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Wes Gebb; Environmental Health Department; Valentinareiner, Defendants-appellees, 12 F.3d 1105 (9th Cir. 1993)Annotate this Case
Submitted Dec. 6, 1993. *Decided Dec. 15, 1993
Before: SNEED, NOONAN and TROTT, Circuit Judges.
Henry Anderson appeals the district court's dismissal of his complaint. The court also imposed a $618.45 Rule 11 sanction, declared Anderson a vexatious litigant and prohibited him from making any future related filings without permission from the chief judge. We affirm.
Because Anderson's perjury and fraud claims were or could have been raised in earlier actions, his claims are barred by the doctrine of res judicata. Federated Department Stores v. Moitie, 452 U.S. 394, 398 (1981). Also, his 28 U.S.C. § 1983 claims are barred by the statute of limitations. His claims arising from the 1982 inspection expired by 1986, and any perjury claim was stale by January 14, 1990. See Usher v. City of Los Angeles, 828 F.2d 556, 561 (9th Cir. 1987).
