Harry L. Abercrombie appeals pro se the district court's summary judgment dismissal of his complaint alleging that the Los Angeles County Employees Retirement Association committed conversion by honoring an Internal Revenue Service levy upon his pension funds. The district court is affirmed because employers are immune from a damages action for honoring IRS levies. See 26 U.S.C. § 6332(e); Farr v. United States, 990 F.2d 451, 455-56 (9th Cir.); cert. denied, 510 U.S. 1023 (1993).
