Before BOWMAN, WOLLMAN, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.
Anthony Q. Harris appeals from an order of the District Court1 granting the motions of the defendants for summary judgment in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. We conclude that on the undisputed facts the District Court correctly held that (1) Harris, who was an at-will employee, had no property interest in continued employment with the City of Pagedale, and therefore had no constitutional right to a pre-termination hearing, and (2) Harris waived any right he may have had to a name-clearing hearing. Because the case does not warrant extended discussion, the judgment of the District Court is affirmed on the basis of that court's thorough and well-reasoned opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
The Honorable David D. Noce, United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri, who presided over the case with the consent of the parties in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(c)
