James L. Martin, appellant pro se.

Nancy E. Gilberg, Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, for appellee Shughart.

John A. Sutherland, Jr., Siciliano, Ellis, Dyer & Boccarosse, for appellee Myers.

Stephen M. Sayers, Hunton & Williams, for remaining appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, WIDENER, and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

1

James L. Martin seeks to appeal from the orders of the district court dismissing the defendants from his diversity/civil rights action.

2

We agree with the district court that it lacked personal jurisdiction over the defendants.

3

We also find no abuse of discretion in the district court's denial of Martin's Fed.R.Civ.P. 59 motion for reconsideration.

4

Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.

5

DISMISSED.
