ORDER AND JUDGMENT(*)
Before KELLY, McKAY, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.
William Punchard, proceeding pro se, appeals the district court's dismissal of his action for lack of federal jurisdiction. In his filings before the district court, Punchard alleged that he is the head-of-state of a non-existent country and that two diplomats employed by his "country" are being illegally incarcerated in New Mexico state prison; Punchard requested habeas relief on behalf of these two individuals. Punchard further alleged that he was being harassed by the Deming, New Mexico "City Magistrate Court," which is allegedly mailing "Harassing Court Summons" to his "Royal Embassy." In dismissing this action, the district court concluded that Punchard's allegations were so fanciful and delusional that they failed to invoke the court's federal question jurisdiction.
This court has thoroughly reviewed all of the numerous documents filed by Punchard in this appeal and has reviewed de novo the district court's order of dismissal and the entire record on appeal. That review demonstrates that the district court's resolution of the case was substantially correct. Accordingly, this
court AFFIRMS for substantially those reasons set out in the district court's order of dismissal dated September 3, 2002. All pending motions are hereby DENIED.
