This en banc decision holds that there is no implied right of action arising directly from 42 USC 1981.  Instead, the substantive rights which section 1981 confers are enforced through an action under 42 USC 1983.  Federation ofAfrican American Contractors v. City of Oakland  (9th Cir. 1996) 96 F.3d 1204, which held to the contrary is overruled.
