Norma Najarro; Dario Villar, Plaintiffs-appellants, v. Brian Hill, Ca State Automobile Association, Defendant-appellee, 39 F.3d 1187 (9th Cir. 1994)Annotate this Case
Submitted Oct. 17, 1994. *Decided Oct. 27, 1994
Before: BROWNING, FARRIS, and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.
Dario Campos Villar appeals the district court's 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d) sua sponte dismissal for lack of jurisdiction of his action alleging various causes of action against his auto insurer, California State Automobile Association, with respect to damage to Villar's auto and possible personal injuries. The parties are both California residents, therefore, there is no diversity jurisdiction. In addition the parties are private parties and not state actors. The district court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing Villar's complaint for lack of federal jurisdiction. Denton v. Hernandez, 112 S. Ct. 1728, 1734 (1992).
