Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California, D.C. No. CV-96-08913-RAP; Richard A. Paez, District Judge, Presiding
Before HUG, Chief Judge, PREGERSON and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.
Leroy Calvin Jones appeals pro se the district court's dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction of his civil rights action alleging that Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association mishandled his checking account. We affirm.
The district court properly dismissed Jones' action with prejudice because Bank of America is a private entity and he failed to allege any facts tending to show that Bank of America conspired with state actors to violate his constitutional rights. See Karim-Panahi v. Los Angeles Police Dep't, 839 F.2d 621, 624 (9th Cir. 1988); Ivey v. Board of Regents, 673 F.2d 266, 268 (9th Cir. 1982).
