1

This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and was argued by plaintiff pro se and by counsel for defendants.

2

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, it is now hereby ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the judgment of said District Court be and it hereby is affirmed substantially for the reasons stated by Judge Batts on the record of July 27, 1995. All of the matters asserted in the present action were litigated in one of plaintiff's state-court proceedings. Any alleged errors in the state-court determinations may be pursued on appeal in the state court. Plaintiff's motion in the district court for reconsideration of the dismissal of his present action, though perhaps timely, was properly denied as lacking in merit.

3

We have considered all of plaintiff's contentions on this appeal and have found them to be without merit. The judgment of the district court is affirmed.
