D. Me.


Before TORRUELLA, Chief Judge, and STAHL and LYNCH, Circuit Judges.


Defendant-appellant challenges an adverse summary judgment finding him liable for debts arising from several promissory notes, and the dismissal of his various counterclaims on jurisdictional grounds. Reviewing the judgment and dismissals de novo, and upon consideration of the parties' briefs and the record, we affirm substantially for the reasons set forth in district court's order of July 27, 1995. See Loc. R. 27.1. We also see no abuse of discretion in the district court's denial of appellant's request for further discovery in this action.
