The district court dismissed plaintiff's civil rights complaint. He appeals. Plaintiff's grievance, alleged in the most general terms, seems to be that the defendants acted on perjured testimony in causing him to be extradited from Texas to Pennsylvania. We think the complaint was properly dismissed on the ground that it failed to set forth the facts with sufficient particularity to withstand a motion to dismiss. Negrich v. Hohn, 379 F.2d 213 (3d Cir. 1967).


The judgment of the district court will be affirmed.
