RICHARD STANLEY, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. CLEAR RECON CORPORATION; NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE, LLC, Defendants-Appellees.


NOT FOR PUBLICATION

D.C. No. 3:15-cv-00827-JAH-KSC MEMORANDUM Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of California
John A. Houston, District Judge, Presiding Before: CANBY, TROTT, and GRABER, Circuit Judges.

This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided by Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3.

Richard Stanley appeals from the district court's judgment dismissing his action alleging federal and state law claims arising out of foreclosure proceedings. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We affirm.

In his opening brief, Stanley fails to address how the district court abused its discretion in dismissing his action for failure to comply with the local rules. As a result, Stanley has waived his challenge to the dismissal order. See Smith v. Marsh, 194 F.3d 1045, 1052 (9th Cir. 1999) ("On appeal, arguments not raised by a party in its opening brief are deemed waived."); Greenwood v. FAA, 28 F.3d 971, 977 (9th Cir. 1994) ("We will not manufacture arguments for an appellant . . . .").

AFFIRMED.
