|STACEY G. BREWER,|
|DELOIS J. BREWER and APRIL HEIM,|
Appellant Stacey G. Brewer, proceeding pro se, appeals the district court's dismissal of his in forma pauperis complaint for failure to state a claim on which relief may be granted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii). Appellant filed a claim against his mother, Ms. Delois J. Brewer, alleging battery, breach of contract, defamation, and the infliction of mental and emotional anguish. Appellant also sued his apartment manager, Ms. April Heim, for her role in the aforementioned actions.
We review the district court's dismissal under § 1915(e)(2)(B)(ii) de novo. See Perkins v. Kansas Dep't of Corr., 165 F.3d 803, 806 (10th Cir. 1999). In this case, Appellant sought only $30,000 in damages and conceded that he lived in the same building as both Defendants, thus barring federal diversity jurisdiction. In addition, Appellant pointed to no federal law under which his claim could be brought. On appeal, Appellant still presents no justification for federal subject- matter jurisdiction. We therefore DISMISS the case for want of jurisdiction.
