MEMORANDUM**

2

William James Riggs, a federal prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion to vacate his sentence for importation of a listed chemical knowing it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. Riggs contends that the Double Jeopardy Clause barred his conviction due to the prior civil forfeiture of $1726.67 in currency. This contention is precluded by the United States Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Ursery, No. 95-345, 1996 WL 340815 (U.S. June 24, 1996).

AFFIRMED.
