Before BOWMAN, MAGILL, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.
Denny R. Hardin and Sherrie Lee Hyde appeal from the District Court's1 dismissal of their 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) action seeking the return of a vehicle relinquished in a state court civil forfeiture proceeding. Because we agree with the District Court that the prior state court judgment precludes Hardin and Hyde from relitigating this matter, we affirm for the reasons discussed in the District Court's opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
The Honorable Dean Whipple, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri
