|ARTHUR R. MORALES,
LOCKHEED MARTIN CORPORATION, BOBBIE V. WILLIAMS, ANTHONY L. THORNTON, CHARLES E. EMERY, C. PAUL ROBINSON and EDWARD D. GRAHAM,
SANDIA CORPORATION and SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES,
After a trial to the court, the district court determined that appellant Arthur Morales failed to prove pretext in his 42 U.S.C. § 1981 suit against his employer for allegedly retaliatory adverse employment actions. Mr. Morales appeals that judgment and also argues that the district court was biased in this case and that he should now be granted a jury trial.
We have examined the pleadings, the briefs of the parties, and the record on appeal. We find no basis upon which to disturb the oral findings of the district court and the judgment in this case, nor do we find evidence of judicial bias. Further, the district court acted well within its discretion in denying Mr. Morales' untimely request for a jury trial.
The judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico is AFFIRMED. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
Entered for the Court
Paul J. Kelly, Jr.
