Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit - 94 F.3d 640 (1st Cir. 1996)

Aug. 27, 1996

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts [Hon. Douglas P. Woodlock, U.S. District Judge]

Fred Davis on brief pro se.

Stephen B. Reed and Kearns & Rubin, P.C. on brief for appellees.

D. Mass.


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


Having reviewed the entire record, including the transcript of the June 30, 1995 truncated deposition at which plaintiff claims he was harassed, we summarily affirm the dismissal of plaintiff's action for the reasons stated in the district court's April 11, 1996 memorandum and order. Plaintiff was not unfairly treated at the deposition and plaintiff was afforded multiple opportunities to complete the deposition. When plaintiff failed without any adequately documented justification to appear for the rescheduled deposition, the court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing plaintiff's action.

Affirmed. Loc. R. 27.1.
