MEMORANDUM*

2

George J. Williams, III, appeals pro se the district court's summary judgment in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action alleging numerous constitutional violations against defendants. The district court granted summary judgment for defendants on Williams's first seven claims. The court granted judgment for defendants on Williams's eighth claim because, it said, no specific defendant was named therein. Williams suggests that he was, in effect, naming the defendants because he was attacking the facial validity of the statute they sought to have applied to him. We accept his characterization of that claim.

3

We affirm the district court's grant of summary judgment on Williams's claims because they all arose from the same "transactional nucleus of facts" that could have been, but were not, raised in Williams's prior unsuccessful § 1983 action against defendants. See International Union of Operating Eng'rs-Employers Constr. Indus. Pension, Welfare & Training Trust Funds v. Karr, 994 F.2d 1426, 1429-31 (9th Cir.1993).

4

Williams's remaining contentions are without merit.

5

AFFIRMED.

**

Because we unanimously find this case suitable for decision without oral argument, we deny Williams's request for oral argument. See Fed. R.App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
