U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 131 F.3d 146 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted November 17, 1997. **Decided Nov. 21, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California, No. CV-96-03763-CBM; Consuelo B. Marshall, District Judge, Presiding.

Before: HUG, Chief Judge, PREGERSON and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.


Belinda U. Corpuz and Gary Abrams appeal pro se the district court's dismissal of their Bivens action seeking damages against a federal hospital and several federal employees. We affirm. The district court did not abuse its broad discretion by denying the motion for a default judgment. See Daly-Murphy v. Winston, 837 F.2d 348, 355 (9th Cir. 1988); Eitel v. McCool, 782 F.2d 1470, 1471-72 (9th Cir. 1986).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
