Read the Circuit Rules, especially Ninth Circuit Rule 25-5, for guidance on Appellate ECF, including which documents can and cannot be filed electronically. Rules of Practice The Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure (Fed. R. App. P.), the Ninth Circuit Rules (9th Cir. R.) and the General Orders govern practice before this Court. The rules are available on the Courts website at www.ca9.uscourts.gov under Rules. Practice Resources The Court has prepared a practice guide video entitled Perfecting Your Appeal. The video may be viewed for free on the Courts website at www.ca9.uscourts.gov under FAQs, Forms and Instructions -> Guides and Legal Outlines, and may be purchased through the Clerks office in San Francisco for $15.00.

Notice of Change of Address Counsel who are registered for Appellate ECF must update their personal information, including street addresses and/or email addresses, online at: https://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/psco/cgi-bin/cmecf/ea-login.pl 9th Cir. R. 46-3. Counsel who have been granted an exemption from using Appellate ECF must file a written change of address with the Court. 9th Cir. R. 46-3. Motions Practice Following are some of the basic points of motion practice, governed by Fed. R. App. P. 27 and 9th Cir. R. 27-1 through 27-13. Neither a notice of motion nor a proposed order is required. Fed. R. App. P. 27(a)(2)(C)(ii), (iii). Motions may be supported by an affidavit or declaration. 28 U.S.C. 1746. Each motion should provide the position of the opposing party. Circuit Advisory Committee Note to Rule 27-1(5); 9th Cir. R. 31-2.2(b)(6). A response to a motion is due 10 days from the service of the motion. Fed. R. App. P. 27(a)(3)(A). The reply is due 7 days from service of the response. Fed. R. App. P. 27(a)(4); Fed. R. App. P. 26(c). A response requesting affirmative relief and/or relief by a date certain must include that request in the caption. Fed. R. App. P. 27(a)(3)(B). A motion filed after a case has been scheduled for oral argument, has been argued, is under submission or has been decided by a panel, must include on the initial page and/or cover the date of argument, submission or decision and, if known, the names of the judges on the panel. 9th Cir. R. 25-4.

Emergency or Urgent Motions All emergency and urgent motions must conform with the provisions of 9th Cir. R. 27-3. Note that a motion requesting procedural relief (e.g., an extension of time to file a brief) is not the type of matter contemplated by 9th Cir. R. 27-3. Circuit Advisory Committee Note to 27-3(3). Prior to filing an emergency motion, the moving party must contact an attorney in the Motions Unit in San Francisco at (415) 355-8020.

When it is absolutely necessary to notify the Court of an emergency outside of standard office hours, the moving party shall call (415) 355-8000. Keep in mind that this line is for true emergencies that cannot wait until the next business day (e.g., an imminent execution or removal from the United States). Briefing Schedule The Court issues the briefing schedule at the time the appeal is docketed. Certain motions (e.g., a motion for dismissal) automatically stay the briefing schedule. 9th Cir. R. 27-11. The opening and answering brief due dates (and any other deadline set for a date certain by the Court) are not subject to the additional time described in Fed. R. App. P. 26(c). The early filing of appellants opening brief does not advance the due date for appellees answering brief. 9th Cir. R. 31-2.1. Extensions of Time to file a Brief A party may seek either an oral or written extension of time. Oral Extension If good cause is shown, the clerk may grant a single extension of no more than 14 days to file an opening, answering or reply brief. 9th Cir. R. 31-2.2(a). You must inform opposing counsel of your plan to request an extension of time before contacting the clerk. If an oral extension is granted, the moving party will not receive any further extensions of time unless the moving party can demonstrate extraordinary circumstances. You may apply for an oral extension by calling: Northern & Eastern California, Hawaii, Guam, Arizona, Northern Mariana Islands, Nevada: (415) 355-7853 Central & Southern California: (626) 229-7261 Eastern & Western Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Alaska: (206) 224-2210

Written Extension Requests for extensions of more than 14 days will be granted only upon a written motion supported by a showing of diligence and substantial need. This motion

shall be filed at least 7 days before the due date for the brief. The motion shall be accompanied by an affidavit or declaration that includes all of the information listed at 9th Cir. R. 31-2.2(b). The Court will ordinarily adjust the schedule in response to an initial motion. Circuit Advisory Committee Note to Rule 31-2.2. The Court expects that the brief will be filed within the requested period of time. Id. Contents of Briefs The required components of a brief are set out at Fed. R. App. P. 28 and 32, and 9th Cir. R. 28-2, 32-1 and 32-2. Excerpts of Record The Court requires excerpts of record rather than an appendix. 9th Cir. R. 301.1(a). Appellant shall file 4 separately-bound excerpts of record with white covers at the time the Opening Brief is filed, and shall serve one copy on each party. 9th Cir. R. 30-1.3. Please review 9th Cir. R. 30-1.3 through 30-1.6 to see a list of the specific contents and format. For excerpts that exceed 75 pages, the first volume must comply with 9th Cir. R. 30-1.6(a). Excerpts exceeding 300 pages must be filed in multiple volumes. 9th Cir. R. 30-1.6(b). Appellee may file supplemental excerpts and appellant may file further excerpts. 9th Cir. R. 30-1.7 and 30-1.8. If you are an appellee responding to a pro se brief that did not come with excerpts, then your excerpts need only include the contents set out at 9th Cir. R. 30-1.7. Mediation Program Mediation Questionnaires are required in all civil cases except cases in which the appellant is proceeding pro se, habeas cases (28 U.S.C. 2241, 2254 and 2255) and petitions for writs (28 U.S.C. 1651). 9th Cir. R. 3-4. They are not required in criminal cases. The Mediation Questionnaire is available on the Courts website at

The Court sits in Portland every other month, depending on caseload. The Court also hears cases 3 times a year in Honolulu and once a year in Anchorage. The Court will change the date or location of an oral hearing only for good cause, and requests to continue a hearing filed within 14 days of the hearing will be granted only upon a showing of exceptional circumstances. 9th Cir. R. 34-2. Oral hearing will be conducted in all cases unless all members of the panel agree that the decisional process would not be significantly aided by oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34.

Statement of Jurisdiction Plaintiff Janetra Johnson, formerly a member of the California Air National Guard and a federally recognized member of the Air National Guard of the United States, filed this action asserting employment discrimination claims under various federal statutes (Title VI, Title VII, Rehabilitation Act), tort claims (conspiracy, medical malpractice, defamation, slander, misrepresentation), and a miscellany of other claims (due process, Privacy Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Family and Medical Leave Act), in connection with her employment with the Guard. She invoked jurisdiction of the district court under, among others, 28 U.S.C. sections 1331 and 1343 with supplemental jurisdiction over her state law claims under section 1367. On April 30, 2010, the district court entered judgment in favor of defendants, dismissing Plaintiffs third amended complaint with prejudice. She filed a notice of appeal on June 28, 2010, within the sixty days allowed by Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a)(1)(B). This Court has jurisdiction over this appeal pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1291. Statement of the Issues Plaintiff, a former member of the California Air National Guard and a federally recognized member of the Air National Guard of the United States,

alleges employment discrimination, tort and constitutional claims as well as various statutory violations in connection with several positions at the Guard. The issues presented are whether the employment, tort and constitutional claims are barred by the Feres doctrine, as she seeks judicial review of decisions relating to the militarys unique structure, and whether her other claims fail to state timely or cognizable claims arising from her employment with the Guard. Statement of the Case Plaintiff, proceeding pro se and informa pauperis, filed three complaints before dismissal of her action. Her original complaint, filed on February 13, 2009, alleged common law tort claims, violations of several California statutes and the Constitution for which she sought, among others, damages in the amount of $2 million. (Doc. No. 1.) Approximately two weeks later, she filed a First Amended Complaint adding new claims, and increasing her damages claim to $500 million. (Doc. No. 10.) Because the amended complaint was not a full and complete recitation of her claims and did not contain any factual allegations, the court was unable to screen it. (Doc. No. 13.) She then filed an Amended Complaint, which the court explained again was insufficient because she failed to provide a complete recitation of the facts and claims. (Doc. Nos. 14 & 15.) She was given

one final opportunity to amend her complaint, which she did with an Amendment. (Doc Nos. 15 & 16.) The Amendment alleged employment discrimination, common law tort claims, constitutional violations and other statutory violations arising from Plaintiffs employment with the Guard. (Doc. No. 16. ) These allegations were the same as the claims in a separate action she filed on February 25, 2009. Because Plaintiff filed two actions with the same operative allegations, the court closed the second action and allowed her an opportunity to file another amended complaint combining all the allegations. (Supplemental Excerpts of Record (SER) 63-65.)1 In allowing her another opportunity to amend her claims, the court admonished her that she could not bring any claims requiring an examination of decisions regarding management, discipline, supervision, and control of members of the armed forces of the United States. (SER 64 (quoting Hodge v. Dalton, 107 F.3d 705, 710 (9th Cir. 1997)).) On July 23, 2009, Plaintiff filed a Third Amended Complaint containing essentially the same allegations of employment discrimination, common law torts and constitutional violations. (SER 18-62.) Plaintiff changed the labels of some

of her claims, made a new claim for misrepresentationtort of appropriation, and she increased her damage claim from $500 million to $1 billion. (Doc. No. 16 at 8 & SER 26, 61.) The district court dismissed Plaintiffs tort and employment claims for lack of jurisdiction under the Feres doctrine, because her claims were integrally related to the militarys unique structure. (SER 5-9.) The Privacy Act and Rehabilitation Act claims were dismissed as time barred, and the FMLA, Title VI and due process claims as not legally cognizable. (SER 9-11.) The individual defendants were dismissed as not the real parties in interest for her claims arising from her employment with the Guard. (SER 12.) Statement of Facts Plaintiff was a member of the California Air National Guard and federally recognized member of the Air National Guard of the United States from 2003 until her resignation in December 2007. (SER 20, 27, 40.) She was employed in the Logistics Readiness Squadron of the California Air National Guard as a GS-9 Master Sergeant Logistics Manager. (SER 20, 27, 40.) At some point in 2005 or 2006, she applied for a GS-11 Budget Analyst position in the same Unit, but learned in January 2007 that she did not receive that position. (SER 28, 38.) She claims she was not selected for this position because she was black. (SER 30.)

In March or April 2006, Plaintiff discovered she was pregnant, informed her supervisors and others, and took a three-week leave of absence in June and July 2006 due to her deteriorated health . . . and pregnancy problems. (SER 34.) As a result, she believes she suffered employment discrimination and harassment. (SER 34-35.) She also claims that when she requested medical leave, her supervisor pried into her private medical records. (SER 36.) She also alleges that on or about July 9, 2006, she was seen by a military flight doctor, and that this resulted in misdiagnosis, malpractice, and neglect. (SER 38, 44-45.) She delivered a child on December 13, 2006, and alleges she did not receive her post-pregnancy convalescent leave. (SER 46.) She further alleges that she was discriminated against because of a psychiatric disability. (SER 55.) She resigned in December 2007 so she could collect military benefits for school, approximately $20,000 . . . . (SER 39.) Approximately two months after her voluntary resignation, in February 2008, Plaintiff started working in a temporary position in the Services office within the Mission Support Group of the California Air National Guard. (SER 40.) She applied for a GS-07 Management and Program Assistant in the same office. (SER 40.) She did not receive this job and on May 2, 2008, filed an administrative complaint with the Technician and Military EO offices. (SER

41.) She alleges that due process was violated in connection with the processing of the administrative complaint. (SER 49-50.) She also faults the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regarding review of agency resources and procedures. (SER 55.) On or about May 9, 2008, her temporary employment was terminated. (SER 41.) In addition to the foregoing, Plaintiff asserts that Privacy Act and HIPAA violations occurred when, for example on June 26, 2006, she provided medical information to defendant Master Sargeant Michelle Fields, who was acting in lieu of the Medical Group Commander. (SER 42.) She further alleges that her privacy was violated when military defendant First Sargeant Stine accessed her Dependant Care Form and used that information to have Stines children, rather than Plaintiffs children, placed in the child care program offered by the military. (SER 43.) However, the concern was resolved and Plaintiffs children were placed in the program. (SER 43.) She further alleges that Stine entered incorrect information regarding her military personnel fitness test into the computer system to prevent her from being promoted. (SER 43.) Plaintiff also asserts various torts, such as defamation/slander against defendant Stine, misrepresentation in connection with a billboard, and physical distress and disability from the defendants conduct. (SER 49, 53-55.)

As noted above, in a fourteen page opinion, the district court dismissed Plaintiffs Third Amended Complaint with prejudice because she failed, after two prior opportunities, to state viable claims. The court concluded that Plaintiffs common law tort claims were barred by the Feres doctrine because [e]ach of these claims arise from her military employment and as the direct result of conduct of her military supervisors. She challenges direct military authority and conduct. (SER 9.) The Feres doctrine also barred her medical malpractice claim because the claim arises from care she was given at the military medical clinic. (SER 10.) The court explained that it was without jurisdiction to review her Title VII claims [because] [e]ach claim involves a review of decisions by military supervisors and that supervisors decision regarding management and control of the armed forces. (SER 11.) Similarly, the Feres doctrine barred her sex/pregnancy claims as related to the decision regarding the military structure and decision making process. (SER 12.) In addition to the Feres doctrine barring most of her claims, the court explained that there was no private cause of action under HIPAA. (SER 12.) Her claim under the Privacy Act was time barred because her complaint filed in February 2009 was more than two years after any alleged unprivileged disclosure. (SER 13.) Similarly, her claim under the Rehabilitation Act was time barred

because Plaintiff does not allege any failure to accommodate any alleged disability within one year of the filing of her complaint. (SER 14.) Her FMLA claim was dismissed because Plaintiff was a federal employee at the time she challenged her denial of medical leave. (SER 13.) Plaintiffs Title VI-due process claim relating to discrimination in her employment was dismissed because the statute does not apply to federal agencies. (SER 14.) The court concluded that [any] statutory and constitutional claims regarding her employment are dismissed as nonreviewable under the Feres doctrine. (SER 17.) The claims against the individual defendants, sued for actions in the course and scope of their employment, were dismissed because there is no personal liability under the Federal Torts Claims Act and the United States was the real party in interest to the extent any tort claim was stated. (SER 15.) The court denied leave to amend explaining that Plaintiff has had two prior opportunities to amend the complaint to address the same challenged allegations, and was unable to do so. (SER 17.) Standard of Review Whether the Feres doctrine is applicable to the facts presented is a question of law reviewed de novo. See Wilkins v. United States, 279 F.3d 782, 785 (9th Cir. 2002); Costo v. United States, 248 F.3d 863, 865-66 (9th Cir. 2001); Bowen v.

Oistead, 125 F.3d 800, 803 (9th Cir. 1997) (court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over claims when barred by the Feres doctrine). Dismissal of an action pursuant to the Feres doctrine is also reviewed de novo. Bowen, 125 F.3d at 803. Dismissal for failure to state a claim pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) is subject to de novo review. Stone v. Travelers Corp., 58 F.3d 434, 436-37 (9th Cir. 1995). However, the standard for review of denial of leave to amend is abuse of discretion. Halet v. Wend Inv. Co., 672 F.2d 1305, 1310 (9th Cir. 1982). Summary of Argument For over fifty years, courts have upheld intra-military immunity to employment, common law, and constitutional claims by military personnel, including dual-status technician employees. Feres v. United States, 340 U.S. 135 (1950) (origin of intra-military immunity known as the Feres doctrine). Title VII employment claims by dual-status technician employees are barred by the Feres doctrine, because personnel actions are integrally related to the militarys unique structure. Mier v. Owens, 57 F.3d 747, 750-51 (9th Cir. 1995) (intra-military immunity for Title VII claims by dual-status technician employee). Constitutional claims arising from employment decisions are similarly barred by the Feres doctrine. Bowen v. Oistead, 125 F.3d 800, 805 (9th Cir. 1997). Common law tort

claims are barred by the Feres doctrine when the challenged actions are an extension of on-base events. Stauber v. Cline, 837 F.2d 395 (9th Cir. 1988) (intramilitary immunity for common law tort claims by dual-status technician employee). This Court recently emphasized that [b]eginning with Feres, the Supreme Court has been quite careful in guarding the doctrine of intra-military immunity against statutory and common law challenges. Zuress v. Donley, 606 F.3d 1249, 1253 (9th Cir. 2010). Plaintiffs employment, tort and Constitutional claims are barred by the Feres doctrine, and her other statutory violations fail to state any cognizable claims. Her challenges to non-selection for several hybrid positions within the Guard as based on racial or gender discrimination, her common law tort claims arising from medical treatment at a military hospital, and her various statutory claims in connection with the conduct of her supervisors and fellow employees at the Guard, all seek judicial inquiry into the unique structure of the military. Jurisdiction over such claims is barred by the Feres doctrine. Her claims under HIPAA and the FMLA were also properly dismissed, as there is no recognized cause of action under those statutes. In addition, her Privacy Act claim is time barred. The individual defendants are not proper parties to any of the common law or statutory claims and were properly dismissed. Plaintiff, moreover, has had

three opportunities to state cognizable claims, but because the Feres doctrine is an absolute bar to any of her claims involving military discretion in employment or tort, and her statutory claims are not cognizable as a matter of law, leave to amend was properly denied. Argument The only claims substantively addressed in Plaintiffs Opening Brief are her employment, tort and FMLA claims. Her Opening Brief does not challenge dismissal of her Rehabilitation Act2 or Privacy Act claims3 as time barred, nor that her Title VI-due process claim as not legally cognizable. She also does not address the dismissal of the individual defendants from her Third Amended Complaint as not the real parties in interest.4 Therefore, under settled law of this

Plaintiffs claim under the Rehabilitation Act is also barred by the Feres doctrine. Coffman v. Mich., 120 F.3d 57, 59 (6th Cir. 1997) (Feres doctrine barred Rehabilitation Act claim arising from reservists failure to complete two-mile run test); Doe v. Garrett, 903 F.2d 1455, 1461-62 (11th Cir. 1990) (Rehabilitation Act claims by active duty military personnel are barred).
2

Plaintiff does not challenge dismissal of her Privacy Act as time barred, and therefore, waives this claim on appeal. Her request [] to file the unauthorized disclosure of her medical information does not preserve any claim for appeal. See Miller v. Fairchild Indus., Inc., 797 F.2d 727, 738 (9th Cir. 1986) (court "will not ordinarily consider matters on appeal that are not specifically and distinctly argued in appellant's opening brief").
3

Dismissal of the individual defendants was also proper under the Feres doctrine because it bars federal military personnel from individual liability claims.

circuit, any challenge to those rulings is waived. See Balser v. Dep't of Justice, 327 F.3d 903, 911 (9th Cir. 2003) (issues not raised in the opening brief usually are deemed waived); Collins v. City of San Diego, 841 F.2d 337, 339 (9th Cir. 1988) (claims not addressed in appellants brief are deemed abandoned); Miller v. Fairchild Indus., Inc., 797 F.2d 727, 738 (9th Cir. 1986) (court "will not ordinarily consider matters on appeal that are not specifically and distinctly argued in appellant's opening brief"). In addition, as explained below, all the arguments set forth in Appellants Opening Brief are insubstantial. The district courts judgment should therefore be affirmed.

I.

Plaintiffs New Claims on Appeal Should Be Disregarded. It is well recognized that an issue raised for the first time on appeal is

deemed waived." WildWest Inst. v. Bull, 547 F.3d 1162, 1172 (9th Cir. 2008); Franklin v. Johnson, 290 F.3d 1223, 1229-32 (9th Cir. 2002) (state waived its procedural default argument raised for the first time on appeal).

For the first time in this appeal, Plaintiff claims constructive discharge for her voluntary resignation in December 2007. (Opening Brief (O.B.) at 6:16-20.) Not only is this claim not listed as one of the nineteen claims alleged in her three complaints, she previously alleged that it was her plans to resign in December and re-enlist in six months so she could collect military benefits for school, approximately $20,000 . . . . (SER 39.) Indeed, her Opening Brief demonstrates that she raised nineteen issues in the district court and constructive discharge was not listed. (O.B. at 13:22-14:3.) This new claim should be summarily disregarded.5 Additionally, Plaintiff acknowledges that she is raising a new claim that if the EEO/AEP and Rehabilitation Act policies were discriminatory, [then] this Court should reverse all court cases, [and] enter judgment in favor of all California Army and Air National Guard technicians who had filed a discrimination complaint and lost in Federal courts, EEOC and/or MSPB. (O.B. at 15:1-7.) The facts of this new claim appear to be a challenge to the performance appraisal policies for National Guard Technicians. (O.B. at 9:16-10:13.) Judicial review of employment decisions by the Guard is barred by the Feres doctrine of intra-military immunity when such decisions involve personnel actions integrally Even if the Court were to consider the claim, it would arise from her employment with the Guard and is barred by the Feres doctrine.

related to the militarys unique structure. Mier v. Owens, 57 F.3d 748 (9th Cir. 1995). Moreover, Plaintiff has not established standing for the requested relief extending to unidentified persons and unidentified claims. In any event, because this claim is raised for the first time on appeal, it should be disregarded. WildWest Inst., 547 F.3d at 1172. II. Plaintiff Failed to Establish Subject Matter Jurisdiction Over Her Employment and Tort Claims. A. The Feres Doctrine Bars Employment Claims Arising from Decisions that Are Integrally Related to Military Service.

The Feres doctrine bars civilian courts from examining decisions regarding management, discipline, supervision, and control of members of the armed forces of the United States. Zaputil v. Cowgill, 335 F.3d 885, 887 (9th Cir. 2003) (quoting Hodge v. Dalton,107 F.3d 705, 710 (9th Cir. 1997)). This Court recently held that the Feres doctrine prevents civilian courts from disturbing military discipline and decision-making in employment determinations. Zuress v. Donley, 606 F.3d 1249, 1250-55 (9th Cir. 2010) (dual-status Air Force Reserve Technicians claims of failure to promote, failure to extend military retirement, temporary detail to lower grade position, forced retirement and retaliation barred by Feres doctrine). "Practically any suit that implicates the military judgment and decisions runs the risk of colliding with Feres." Persons v. United States, 925

F.2d 292, 295 (9th Cir. 1991) (internal citation omitted). A National Guard technician is a hybrid job entailing both civilian and military aspects.6 Mier, 57 F.3d at 747, 750. A dual status technician cannot challenge employment decisions that bear upon the military aspects of their job. Zuress, 606 F.3d at 1251, 1255 (intra-military immunity applies to employment discrimination claims of dual-status technician); Mier, 57 F.3d at 751; Gregory v. Widnall, 153 F.3d 1071, 1074 (9th Cir. 1998) (National Guard technicians claim of failure to promote nonjusticiable under Title VII). Plaintiff acknowledges that her job is a hybrid position, combining both military and civilian aspects and that to hold the civilian position, [she] is required to be a member of the National Guard and hold the commensurate military position. (O. B. at 2:16-17; 2:19-20.) She also acknowledges that Mier is one of the relevant cases to her claims, but she ignores Miers recognition of an absolute bar to judicial review of employment discrimination claims. Plaintiffs discriminatory non-selection, termination and retaliation claims are challenges to In the context of National Guard Technician employees, dual status is a statutory term of art referring to the technicians simultaneous status as both an employee of the Department of the Army or the Department of the Air Force, as the case may be, and an employee of the United States, 32 U.S.C. 709(e), and as a uniformed member of the National Guard, 32 U.S.C. 709(b), who is required as a condition of that employment to maintain membership in the Selected Reserve of the U.S. Army or U.S. Air Force, as the case may be, 10 U.S.C. 10216(a)(1)(B).

personnel decisions that are integrally related to her position with the Guard and are therefore barred by the Feres doctrine. Zuress, 606 F.3d at 1250, 1255 (claims of discrimination in failure to promote, failure to extend military retirement, temporary detail to lower grade position, forced retirement and retaliation barred by Feres doctrine). A brief review of her claims, such as the allegations of violations of Title VII regarding her non-selection to the Budget Analyst position in 2007, a position requiring a military role, relates to military decisions that are not subject to review in a civilian court.7 Mier, 57 F.3d at 751; Gregory, 153 F.3d at 1074 (National Guard technicians claim of failure to promote nonjusticiable under Title VII, due to Feres doctrine). Similarly, the position of Management and Program Assistant in the Services Office involved a dual-status military technician position affecting both civilian employment and military grade/rank. Therefore, no challenge can by made by Plaintiff for her non-selections to this position. See Zuress v. Donley, 606 F.3d at 1250-55 (dual-status Air Force Reserve Technicians claims of failure

The record also established that Plaintiff failed to timely exhaust her administrative remedies in connection with her nonselection to the Budget Analyst position in 2007. Although Plaintiff claims that her first contact with an EEO counselor was on May 2, 2008, any claims prior to February 22, 2008 are time barred. 29 C.F.R. 1614.105(a) (claimant must contact EEO officer within 45 days of incident). The district court did not reach this issue as it concluded that the Feres doctrine barred all employment claims alleged by Plaintiff.

to promote barred by Feres doctrine). Her claim of negligent supervision, alleging she performed multiple duties without a supervisor and that she was unable to perform the work relating to the deployment of soldiers while pregnant, arises from the supervision of military operations deployment and therefore is barred by the Feres doctrine. Zaputil, 335 F.3d at 887 (civilian courts barred from examining decisions regarding . . . supervision, and control of members of the armed forces). Plaintiffs claim of discriminationsex, pregnancy because she was passed up for a promotion . . . her permanent employment and expert status removed, and she was prohibited from seeking employment outside the office as well as harassed and subjected to excessive physical fitness test as a result of her pregnancy, challenge employment decisions that are not reviewable under the Feres doctrine. (SER 34-35); Mier, 57 F.3d at 751 (decisions regarding promotion [or] suspension of civilian employees of the National Guard, including technicians, are integrally related to the militarys unique structure). Plaintiff s retaliation and wrongful termination claims are also barred by the Feres doctrine, because the decision to not extend her temporary employment implicates military judgment regarding how to run the military, which is not reviewable in a civilian court. Zuress, 606 F.3d at 1250, 1255 (retaliation claim by

dual-status technician barred by the Feres doctrine). The settled law of this Circuit is that employment decisions regarding military matters are not reviewable, due to overriding concerns of interference with military discretion. See Christoffersen v. Wash. State Air Nat'l Guard, 855 F.2d 1437, 1442 (9th Cir. 1988) (internal military decision is unreviewable unless the plaintiff alleges a violation of a recognized constitutional right or federal statute and exhaustion of available intraservice remedies and then the court analyzes the nature and strength of the claim, the potential injury if review is refused, the extent of interference with military functions, and the extent to which military discretion or expertise is involved). For example, in Sandidge v. State of Washington, 813 F.2d 1025, 1026-27 (9th Cir. 1987), the court held against reviewability of claim by a National Guard officer for revision of a job performance evaluation, as the evaluation involved military discretion and expertise, and judicial review would require significant interference with military functions. Similarly, in Gonzalez v. Dept of the Army, 718 F.2d 926, 929-30 (9th Cir. 1983), the court declined to examine the claim of wrongful denial of promotion based on racial discrimination because the officers who participated in reviewing appellants performance would have to be examined to determine the grounds and motives for their [performance] ratings and such inquiry involved an

impermissible interference in military expertise and discretion. See also Wenger v. Monroe, 282 F.3d 1068, 1075-76 (9th Cir. 2002) (claims asking court to decide what should have been done when an officer who might otherwise have been promoted was present at an incident involving misconduct involves military discretion and is not reviewable); Christoffersen, 855 F.2d at 1443-45 (declining to reach claim of nonretention on the basis of whistleblowing activities because inquiry would require examination of grounds and motives of officers who made nonretention decisions). Likewise, here, Plaintiffs claims of nonselection and wrongful termination require an examination of the grounds and motives of the officers who made the decisions, which would impermissibly interfere with military discretion. See Sandidge, 813 F.2d at 1026-27; Gonzalez, 718 F.2d at 929-30. For example, Plaintiffs claim of non-selection to the Budget Analyst position in 2007, for which assignment to a dual-status military position was also required, relates to military decisions that are not subject to review in a civilian court.8 Mier, 57 F.3d at 751; Gregory, 153 F.3d at 1074. Similarly, her non-selection to the position of

In her Opening Brief Plaintiff refers to this claim as sex discriminationbudget analyst position; however she argues that she was not selected on the basis of racial animus. (O.B. at 2:25; 3:14-15). Regardless of the label, the challenged employment decision is not reviewable under the Feres doctrine.

the Management and Program Assistant in the Services Office involved a dualstatus military position, and courts may not interfere with the militarys decisions regarding competency for hybrid positions. Plaintiffs retaliation and wrongful termination claims arise from the decision to not extend her temporary employment, which implicates military judgment. Such decisions are not reviewable in a civilian court. Mier, 57 F.3d at 751 (decisions regarding promotion [or] suspension of civilian employees of the National Guard, including technicians, are integrally related to the militarys unique structure). Because Plaintiffs claims seek judicial interference with military discretion, her employment claims were properly dismissed without leave to amend.9 B. Plaintiffs Tort Claims Are Not Cognizable Under the Feres Doctrine.

Under the Feres doctrine, "the Government is not liable under the Federal Tort Claims Act for injuries to servicemen where the injuries arise out of or are in the course of activity incident to service." Feres v. United States, 340 U.S. 135, 146 (1950) (claim for medical malpractice barred by intra-military immunity). Additionally, any due process claims based on employment discrimination are not cognizable. Nolan v. Cleland, 686 F.2d 806, 815 (9th Cir. 1982) (rejecting Fifth Amendment due process claims "where the factual predicate for. . .[the] due process claim is the discrimination which is the basis of. . .[the] Title VII claim"); Clemente v. United States, 766 F.2d 1358, 1364, n.7 (9th Cir. 1985) (to the extent additional claims "are founded in actions proscribed by Title VII, they may not be maintained because Title VII provides the exclusive remedy").

More specifically, this Court has consistently held that claims arising out of the medical care that active duty service members receive in military hospitals is considered "incident to service" and thus barred under the Feres doctrine. Jackson v. United States, 110 F.3d 1484, 1486-87, 1489 (9th Cir. 1997); Hata v. United States, 23 F.3d 230, 235 (9th Cir. 1994); Veillette v. United States, 615 F.2d 505, 507 (9th Cir. 1980). The Feres doctrine bars suit regardless of whether the medical treatment was for injuries sustained during performance of military duties. Jackson, 110 F.3d at 1489 ("Feres bars suits for medical malpractice even when the treatment was not for military-related injuries"); see also Costo v. United States, 248 F.3d 863, 868 (9th Cir. 2001) ("[I]n the context of medical malpractice suits, we have consistently barred suit - even when the injury did not arise out of the course of duty."). Plaintiff 's malpractice claim necessarily involves her military service. She alleged that the military flight doctor "failed to do his job" by not attempting to diagnose or treat her ailments and modify her work conditions. (SER 44.) The Feres doctrine bars Plaintiff's claim, as the basis for the medical visit was in connection with her employment with the California Air National Guard. (SER 45.) Additionally, the Feres doctrine bars tort claims that involve challenges to

statements made to military employees. In Stauber v. Cline, 837 F.2d 395 (9th Cir. 1988), the plaintiff's dual-employment status as a technician mechanic and guardsman barred his claims of emotional distress, libel, and harm to reputation arising from statements made by his supervisors both at the on-base maintenance shop and off-base. Although not all the alleged misconduct occurred on the base, this fact did not bar application of the Feres doctrine, as the harassment was an "extension of on-base events to which intramilitary immunity properly applies." Id. at 400. Under Stauber, Plaintiff's claim of privacy and HIPAA violations arising from statements made by First Sergeant Stine in her "military position" are not subject to judicial review as it would infringe upon the unique structure of the military. Her claims arising from statements about her physical fitness score and re-enlistment papers also challenge military decisions that are not subject to review in civilian courts. Similarly, her claim of alleged "misrepresentation" regarding her photograph appearing on a billboard for the Air National Guard is not reviewable as the billboard is "integrally related" to promoting the military. Bowen v. Oistead, 125 F.3d at 800, 803-04 (9th Cir. 1997) (Feres bars tort claims of misrepresentation and defamation in connection with termination of Guard member).

The case cited by Plaintiff, Schoenfeld v. Quamme, 492 F.3d 1016 (9th Cir. 2007), is factually and legally distinguishable, because the personal injuries suffered while Schoenfeld was on liberty and heading off-base on the weekend were not related to his military service.10 The court emphasized that Schoenfeld was not participating in any military-sponsored activity, and his injuries as a passenger in a vehicle damaged as a result of a defective guardrail did not implicate the disciplinary system of the military. Unlike the personal injuries suffered by Schoenfeld in a car accident while on liberty, Plaintiffs allegations of misdiagnosis and malpractice, defamation/slander, misrepresentation, and distress-physical are all incident to her service with the Guard and therefore are barred by the Feres doctrine. (SER 44-45, 49, 53-54.) III. The District Court Properly Dismissed Plaintiffs HIPAA Claim. There is no private right of action under HIPAA. Webb v. Smart Document Solutions, LLC, 499 F.3d 1078, 1081 (9th Cir. 2007). Plaintiff does not address the controlling law preventing her from stating a claim under HIPAA. Instead, her The Ninth Circuit applied the four factors for assessing tort claims by military members explained in Johnson v. United States, 704 F.2d 1431, 1436-41 (9th Cir. 1983) (non-exclusive factors for evaluating tort claims include place where act occurred, plaintiffs duty status at time of injury; military benefits paid to plaintiff and the nature of the plaintiffs activities when injured). These factors are inapplicable to employment claims by dual-status members. Zuress, 606 F.3d at 1255 (no reexamination of rule that dual-status technicians cannot challenge employment decisions under Feres doctrine).

argument on appeal is limited to a request to file a claim under the Privacy Act, with the only reference to HIPAA being in heading L of her Opening Brief. (Opening Brief at 11:20.) Accordingly, dismissal of her HIPAA claim should be affirmed. See United States v. Kimble, 107 F.3d 712, 715 n.2 (9th Cir. 1997) (because this argument was not coherently developed in his briefs on appeal, we deem it to have been abandoned). IV. The District Properly Dismissed Plaintiffs FMLA Claim. There is no private cause of action under the FMLA for federal employees with more than twelve months of service. Russell v. U.S. Dep't of the Army, 191 F.3d 1016, 1019 (9th Cir. 1999). [T]he absence of an express waiver of the governments sovereign immunity in Title II of the FMLA bars private suits for violations of its provisions. Id. at 1019. Here, at the time of the alleged violation of the FMLA, Plaintiff was employed as an Air National Guard technician for more than a year so she was within Title II of the FMLA. (SER 37 (employment started in 2003); SER 40 (Plaintiff resigned her full-time position on December 17, 2007).) Because the alleged violation occurred while she was a Title II federal employee, she cannot state a claim under the FMLA. Indeed, Plaintiff makes no attempt to address the substantive reason for dismissal of her FMLA claim, that she was employed for

over a year, and her arguments regarding the facts of the alleged denial of leave are not grounds for reversal. United States v. Kama, 394 F.3d 1236, 1239 (9th Cir. 2005) (argument waived for failure to challenge the basis of the district courts ruling at appellate level). Dismissal of her FMLA claim, therefore, should be affirmed. V. The District Court Properly Denied Plaintiff Leave to Amend For A Fourth Time Because Amendment Would be Futile. Leave to amend is routinely denied after several failed attempts if further amendments would be futile. Chappel v. Lab. Corp. of Am., 232 F.3d 719, 725-26 (9th Cir. 2000) ("A district court acts within its discretion to deny leave to amend when amendment would be futile . . . ."). Leave to amend is properly denied to a pro se litigant who fails to demonstrate an amendment can state legally viable claims. See Balser, 327 F.3d at 911 (affirming denial of leave to amend complaint, despite liberality generally afforded pro se litigants, because opening brief on appeal set forth no legal basis for reversal); Bowen, 125 F.3d at 806 (affirming dismissal in part because appellant failed to explain how he could have amended complaint to state a claim). Plaintiff was provided with three opportunities to state viable claims. Before filing the Third Amended Complaint she was admonished not to allege claims challenging military decisions, but she declined to follow this instruction. 25

(SER 64.) Despite ample opportunities and guidance, Plaintiffs Third Amended Complaint fails to state any viable claims. Additionally, Plaintiff fails to explain how a further amendment can address the substantive defects in her claims, namely the Feres bar to her military related claims. Accordingly, the district court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing the Third Amended Complaint without leave to amend. See Bowen, 125 F.3d at 806 (dismissal without leave to amend upheld on appeal where the matters not substantively addressed in opening brief).

No. 10-16450 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT JANETRA JOHNSON, Plaintiff/Appellant, v. DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY AND AIR FORCE; CALIFORNIA AIR NATIONAL GUARD; EQUAL OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION; SECRETARY OF THE AIR; JOHNNY LEAL, Supply Superintendent; DAVID BANDINI, Colonel; JOHNATHAN FLAUGHER, Wing Commander; MICHAEL YAMAMOTA, Supervisor; FINANCE OFFICER; GROVES, Major; MICHELLE FIELDS, Medical Officer; JAMES PATTON, State SEEM/EEO Officer; ARTURO CANTO; GREG MOORE, Secretary of the Air Force; JOHN COTTER, Lt.

Appellees hereby move this Court to strike various portions of Appellant's "Untimely Filing of Supplemental Excerpts of Record" as untimely and for impermissibly citing to materials outside the record.1 I. PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND The briefs on appeal were completed on November 18, 2010. Eight months after Appellant filed her Opening Brief and seven months after she filed her Reply, Appellant submits her "Untimely Filing of Supplemental Excerpts of Record." She acknowledges that the filing is untimely, yet claims the documents are relevant to her claim of error by the District Court in dismissing her case. However, it is well established in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Ninth Circuit Appellate Rules, and controlling case law that matters not presented to the District Court, many of which are newspaper articles and documents from other states, are inappropriate for consideration and should be stricken. /// /// Appellees note that Appellant stated she is dismissing Shirley Stine, Arturo Cano and Jahromi Shazad. The appeal, therefore, only proceeds as against the other named defendants who are the Department of the Army and Air Force; California Air National Guard; Equal Opportunity Commission; Secretary of the Air Force; Johnny Leal, David Bandini; Jonathan Flaugher, Michael Yamamoto Groves; Michelle Fields; James Patton; John Cotter; and Raymond Greer.

II. ARGUMENT In her untimely submission, Appellant includes a series of publications and materials outside of the record, in violation of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Ninth Circuit Rules, as well as controlling case law. Her inclusion of this extraneous information, which consists mostly of commentary by the press, is wholly inappropriate, and the information should be stricken. The following is a listing of the documents that are outside the record on this appeal: SER 74-billboard SER 75- DoD 1400.25 DoD Civilian Personnel Management SER 121 News Article SER 122-124 Kansas National Guard Technician Performance Management System SER125-164 Kentucky National Guard Civilian Personnel Incentive Awards Program SER165-167 Missouri National Guard Technician Performance Management System SER 168 News Article SER 197-203 Governor's Remarks of February 2, 2010 SER 204-210 News Article SER 211-251 Litigation and Employment Law Update 2009 NGJAG 2

The Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure limit the record on appeal to: (1) the original papers and exhibits filed in the district court; (2) the transcript of proceedings, if any; and (3) a certified copy of the docket entries prepared by the district clerk. Fed. R. App. P. 10(a). See Ninth Cir. R. 10-2 (delineating similar items). In keeping with these rules, this Court has repeatedly held that "[m]atters which were not before the trial court will be stricken on motion." Panaview Door & Window Co. v. Reynolds Metal Co., 255 F.2d 920, 922 (9th Cir. 1958); see also Barcamerica International USA v. Tyfield Importers, Inc. 289 F.3d 589, 594 (9th Cir. 2002) (papers not filed in the District Court are not part of the record on appeal); United States v. Kennedy, 890 F.2d 1056, 1058, n. 4 (9th Cir. 1988) United States v. Kennedy, 890 F.2d 1056, 1058 n.4 (9th Cir. 1989) (striking a portion of the appellant's brief that referred to two documents outside of the record); Kirshner v. Uniden Corp. of America, 842 F.2d 1074, 1077 (9th Cir. 1988) (striking documents outside the record); Russell v. Cunningham, 233 F.2d 806, 809 (9th Cir. 1956) (attempt to enlarge record with facts outside the record "must be rejected."). /// ///

The information set forth above in Appellants untimely submission should be stricken as it is not properly part of the record.

MEMORANDUM * DEPARTMENTS OF THE ARMY AND AIR FORCE; et al., Defendants - Appellees.

under 28 U.S.C. 1291. We review de novo both a district courts dismissal under the Feres intra-military immunity doctrine, Jackson v. United States, 110 F.3d 1484, 1486 (9th Cir. 1997), and a dismissal for failure to state a claim, Webb v. Smart Document Solutions, LLC, 499 F.3d 1078, 1082 (9th Cir. 2007). We affirm. The district properly dismissed Johnsons employment discrimination and tort claims as precluded by the Feres intra-military immunity doctrine. See Zuress v. Donley, 606 F.3d 1249, 1250, 1252-55 (9th Cir. 2010) (noting that Feres doctrine applies whenever a legal action would require a civilian court to examine decisions regarding management, discipline, supervision, and control of members of the armed forces of the United States[,] and affirming that Feres doctrine precluded dual status military and civilian employees Title VII claims (citation and internal quotation marks omitted)); Stauber v. Cline, 837 F.2d 395, 399-401 (9th Cir. 1988) (Feres doctrine precluded dual status military and civilian employees common law tort claims arising from workplace conduct); see also Jackson, 110 F.3d at 1489 (Feres bars suits for medical malpractice even when the treatment was not for military-related injuries.). The district court properly dismissed Johnsons claims under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) because Johnson did not have a private right of

action. See Webb, 499 F.3d at 1082 (HIPAA . . . does not provide for a private right of action[.]); Russell v. U.S. Dept of the Army, 191 F.3d 1016, 1018-19 (9th Cir. 1999) (no private right of action under the FMLA for federal employees with more than twelve months of service). The district court properly dismissed as time-barred Johnsons Rehabilitation Act claim and her Privacy Act claim arising from the alleged disclosure of her medical information. See Cal. Civ. Proc. Code 335.1 (establishing two year statute of limitation for personal injury claims); Douglas v. Cal. Dept of Youth Auth., 271 F.3d 812, 823 & n.11 (9th Cir. 2001) (forum states statute of limitations for personal injuries applies to Rehabilitation Act claim), abrogated on other grounds by Natl R.R. Passenger Corp. v. Morgan, 536 U.S. 101 (2002); Rose v. United States, 905 F.2d 1257, 1259 (9th Cir. 1990) (The Privacy Act provides a two year statute of limitation, 5 U.S.C. 552a(g)(5), which commences when the person knows or has reason to know of the alleged violation.). The district court did not abuse its discretion by dismissing Johnsons third amended complaint without leave to amend. See Gordon v. City of Oakland, 627 F.3d 1092, 1094 (9th Cir. 2010) (setting forth standard of review and noting that leave to amend may be denied if amendment would be futile).

Johnsons remaining contentions are unpersuasive. We do not consider matters not specifically and distinctly raised and argued in the opening brief, nor arguments and allegations raised for the first time on appeal. See Padgett v. Wright, 587 F.3d 983, 985 n.2 (9th Cir. 2009) (per curiam). Johnsons request to file a late supplemental excerpts of record is granted. Defendants motion to strike those portions of Johnsons supplemental excerpts of record that were not part of the district court record is granted. AFFIRMED.
