OPINION OF THE COURT

PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

Appellant's civil action for damages against his former attorney alleges that the attorney in a criminal case in a state court neglected to challenge the legal sufficiency of an indictment. The district court granted summary judgment for the defendant on the ground that there was no federal jurisdiction. See 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1343. On the authority of Thomas v. Howard, 455 F.2d 228 (3d Cir., filed Feb. 9, 1972), we affirm.
