AFFIRMED.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Cedarbaum, Judge).

Present: HONORABLE ELLSWORTH A. VAN GRAAFEILAND, HONORABLE THOMAS J. MESKILL, HONORABLE RALPH K. WINTER, Circuit Judges.

1

This cause came to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and was submitted.

2

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that the judgment of the District Court is hereby affirmed.

3

Patricia Rogers appeals from Judge Cedarbaum's sua sponte dismissal of her complaint. We affirm for substantially the reasons stated in the district court's Order dated May 23, 1995 and, in addition, because we can discern no cognizable federal claim in Rogers' complaint. See Alfaro Motors, Inc. v. Ward, 814 F.2d 883, 887 (2d Cir.1987) (civil rights complaint "must contain specific allegations of fact which indicate a deprivation of constitutional rights").
