Robert J. Gallagher, Plaintiff, Appellant, v. Federal National Mortgage Association, Defendant, Appellee, 16 F.3d 401 (1st Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit - 16 F.3d 401 (1st Cir. 1994) February 18, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire

Robert J. Gallagher on brief pro se.



Before Breyer, Chief Judge, Cyr and Stahl, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

Appellant has no federal constitutional right to appellate review of a state lower court decision. McKane v. Durston, 153 U.S. 684, 687 (1894). Regardless whether or not the New Hampshire Supreme Court chooses to review a state court ruling, lower federal courts lack jurisdiction to review state court decisions. The dismissal of appellant's action is affirmed for the reasons stated in the magistrate's August 17, 1993 report.
