|RICHARD ANTHONY BOURIE,||
|ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF COLORADO,||
(D.C. No. 97-B-1625)
Appellant Richard Anthony Bourie, proceeding pro se, appeals the dismissal of his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 habeas action, in which he sought relief from a civil, state personnel "corrective action" he received based on his use of excessive force in the course of an arrest he made while employed as a police officer by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. The district court held it lacked jurisdiction to hear a habeas petition based solely on a civil state personnel proceeding, and dismissed Mr. Bourie's petition.
We deny Mr. Bourie's request for a certificate of appealability and dismiss his petition for substantially the reasons stated in the district court's order dated August 26, 1997.
