|GLENN R. BEUSTRING,||
|THE OKLAHOMA BAR ASSOCIATION, the agent and an official arm of the Supreme Court of Oklahoma, through its General Counsel, Dan Murdock,|
The details of this case, including Mr. Beustring's arguments and the underlying facts and procedural history, are set forth in detail in two orders entered by the district court, dated, respectively, March 1, 2004, and March 23, 2004, and we need not repeat them here. In those orders, the district court concluded that "it should abstain from exercising jurisdiction over the case at bar under the Younger/Middlesex abstention doctrine."(1) Accordingly, the court dismissed the action on that basis. Likewise, the district court denied the plaintiff/appellant's Fed. R. Civ. P. 59(e) motion to vacate the judgment, citing the same grounds set forth in the court's initial opinion.
We have reviewed Mr. Beustring's arguments on appeal claiming that the district court erred in its judgment, and we are unpersuaded. Substantially for the reasons and on the grounds set forth in the district court's opinions referred to above, the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED.
ENTERED FOR THE COURT
