Submitted Jan. 12, 1998**.Decided Jan. 16, 1998
Before BROWNING, KLEINFELD, and THOMAS, Circuit Judges.
We affirm the district court's dismissal without prejudice of California state prisoner James Folsom's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action, based on his failure to comply with the pleading requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 8 that his complaint contain a "short and plain statement of the claim." See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); Ferdik v. Bonzelet, 963 F.2d 1258, 1260 (9th Cir. 1992).
