Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 986 F.2d 503 (8th Cir. 1993)

Submitted: December 16, 1992. Filed: February 1, 1993

Before MAGILL, LOKEN, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


Robert K. Walker appeals from the district court's1  grant of summary judgment in favor of Sheriff Robert Dotson in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Walker claimed that, while he was being held at the county jail for parole violation, he was deprived of his constitutional rights related to his medical needs, conditions of confinement, and access to the courts. The district court entered summary judgment for Dotson, concluding Walker's constitutional rights were not violated. After a careful review of the record, we affirm on the basis of the district court opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Russell G. Clark, Senior United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri
