No. 92-1130.

United States Court of Appeals,
Eighth Circuit.

Submitted: May 1, 1992.
Filed: May 7, 1992.

NOTICE: Eighth Circuit Rule 28A(k) governs citation of unpublished opinions and provides that they are not precedent and generally should not be cited unless relevant to establishing the doctrines of res judicata, collateral estoppel, the law of the case, or if the opinion has persuasive value on a material issue and no published opinion would serve as well.

Before BOWMAN, MAGILL, and BEAM, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.

1

Leo M. Mullen, M.D., appeals from the district court's1 dismissal of this action against the United States and twenty other parties. Mullen sought "money damages and criminal prosecution," citing 28 U.S.C. § 1346, the jurisdictional statute for the Federal Tort Claims Act, 28 U.S.C. §§ 2671-80. Having reviewed the record, we conclude the district court correctly granted certain defendants' motions to dismiss under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b). These dismissals are with prejudice to a further action by Mullen. The court properly dismissed the complaint without prejudice as to the remaining defendants for failure to effectuate service within the applicable time period, see Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(j).

2

Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47A(a).
