1. Plaintiff-appellant Linda Gonzalez appeals pro se from a judgment entered June 26, 1995 that granted summary judgment to defendants-appellees Gannett Satellite Information Network ("Gannett") and Jan Sprawls dismissing Gonzalez' complaint, and from an order entered November 2, 1995 that denied her motion for relief from the judgment pursuant to Rule 60(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. See Gonzalez v. Gannett Satellite Information Network, No 93-CV-625, slip op. (N.D.N.Y. Nov. 2, 1995).

2. We affirm the judgment of the district court substantially for the reasons stated by the district court in open court on May 26, 1995. See Gonzalez v. Gannett Satellite Information Network, No. 93-CV-625 (bench ruling) (N.D.N.Y. May 26, 1995).

3. Because Gonzalez failed to file a notice of appeal after the district court issued its decision denying her relief pursuant to Rule 60(b), we lack jurisdiction to decide this aspect of her appeal. In any event, we agree with the district court that Gonzalez' Rule 60(b) motion presents no basis for relief from the prior judgment.
