(D.C. No. 96-CV-3128)
Michael Anthony Polk, a federal prisoner, appeals from the dismissal of his pro se civil rights complaint seeking damages for "medical malpractice." Without reference to the Eighth Amendment or any other constitutional provision, he alleged while he was in the Detention Facility at Leavenworth, Kansas, operated by the Corrections Corporation of America (Corporation), a dentist removed four wisdom teeth. Mr. Polk summarily claimed this procedure resulted in subsequent injuries, and he sued not only the Corporation but also the Warden and Assistant Warden at USP Leavenworth, the dentist, and a nurse. Finding Mr. Polk failed to set forth a Constitutional basis for his claim or a contention the actions of the defendants were intentional, the district court summarily dismissed the action. We AFFIRM the decision for the reasons given by the district court.
