Wallace McFarland ("McFarland") appeals pro se the district court's order denying him leave to file the complaint received by the district court on January 13, 1995. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291. See Moy v. United States, 906 F.2d 467, 470 (9th Cir. 1990).

We review for abuse of discretion the district court's refusal to file a complaint pursuant to a pre-filing review order of meritless claims for an abuse, See Moy, 906 F.2d at 469, and we affirm for the reasons stated in the district court order filed on February 14, 1995.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
