U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 930 F.2d 32 (10th Cir. 1991) April 3, 1991

Before TACHA, SETH and EBEL, Circuit Judges.


TACHA, Circuit Judge.

Counsel for Appellants conceded at oral argument that the defamation claim against Appellee Brent Ward did not survive the death of Appellant Calvin Black. We therefore AFFIRM the district court's order granting Appellees' motion for summary judgment on this claim. We also AFFIRM the district court's dismissal of the false imprisonment claim against Appellees Ben Tafoya, Tim Clark, Daniel Hughes, and Craig Endicott for substantially the reasons given by the district court.


This order and judgment has no precedential value and shall not be cited, or used by any court within the Tenth Circuit, except for purposes of establishing the doctrines of the law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel. 10th Cir.R. 36.3
