Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 80 F.3d 558 (D.C. Cir. 1996) Feb. 21, 1996

Before: WALD, WILLIAMS and ROGERS, Circuit Judges.



This appeal was considered on the record from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and on the briefs filed by the parties. The court has determined that the issues presented occasion no need for an opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 34(j). It is

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the district court's order filed December 9, 1994, be affirmed substantially for the reasons stated therein. The district court correctly concluded that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over the defendant. See Argentine Republic v. Amerada Hess Shipping Corporation, 488 U.S. 428 (1989).

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 41.
