APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS
[Hon. Patti B. Saris, U.S. District Judge ]
Before Torruella, Chief Judge , Stahl and Lipez, Circuit Judges .
═════ Michael Scott on brief pro se.
Loretta C. Argrett , Assistant Attorney General, Frank P. Cihlar , John A. Dudeck, Jr. , Attorneys, Tax Division, Department of Justice, and Donald K. Stern , United States Attorney, on brief for appellees.
═════ Per Curiam . Pro se taxpayer Michael Scott appeals from the district court's decision denying his petition to quash certain Internal Revenue Service summonses and granting the government's request to enforce certain summonses. ═ After careful review of the appellant's and government's briefs, we conclude, for the reasons given by the government, that appellant's claims of error lack merit. ═ We also conclude, essentially for the reasons given by the magistrate judge in his November 13, 1998 order, which the district court adopted after de novo review as its final order on February 9, 1999, that the petition to quash was properly denied and the request for enforcement properly granted.
═════ Affirmed. ═ See Loc. R. 27(c).
