|ISSIAKA I. NAMOKO,||
|HONORABLE WALKER D.
MILLER; HONORABLE MICHAEL
Before HENRY, TYMKOVICH, and HOLMES, Circuit Judges.
Issiaka Namoko, appearing pro se as he did in the district court, appeals from the district court's dismissal of his complaints against Judge Walker Miller and Magistrate Judge Michael Hegarty for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Mr. Namoko also seeks to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP).
Mr. Namoko's complaint arose from two prior employment discrimination cases he filed in the District of Colorado. See Namoko v. Milgard Mfg., Inc., No. 06-cv-02031-WDM-MEH (D. Colo. Apr. 6, 2007); Namoko v. Cognisa Sec., Inc., No. 05-cv-00763-WDM-MEH (D. Colo. filed Apr. 26, 2005). In Milgard Manufacturing, Judge Miller adopted Magistrate Judge Hegarty's recommendation that Mr. Namoko's complaint be dismissed as time-barred and dismissed the complaint with prejudice. That case is currently on appeal before this court, No. 07-1171. In Cognisa Security, Judge Miller again adopted Magistrate Judge Hegarty's recommendation, this time to enforce the settlement agreement entered into by the parties. Mr. Namoko's appeal in that case has been terminated, apparently for procedural defects. See Nos. 07-1101, -1296.
In this action, Mr. Namoko filed two Title VII complaints alleging bias, discrimination, and retaliation under 42 U.S.C. § 2000a on the part of Judge Miller and Magistrate Judge Hegarty in the handling of the above employment actions. Although Mr. Namoko seeks relief under Title VII, he has failed to claim that he was the victim of an adverse employment action taken by either Judge Miller or Magistrate Judge Hegarty. As the district court observed, it is not empowered to review the orders filed in Mr. Namoko's employment discrimination cases because Mr. Namoko's remedy for his dissatisfaction with the previous Title VII rulings is an appeal to this court, which Mr. Namoko has filed. Thus, the district court's sua sponte determination that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over Mr. Namoko's Title VII suits under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(h)(3) was correct.
Accordingly, we AFFIRM the district court's dismissal of Mr. Namoko's complaints and DENY his motion to proceed IFP.
