Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 116 F.3d 480 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted June 5, 1997. Filed June 10, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

Before BOWMAN, WOLLMAN, and BEAM, Circuit Judges.


Alonzo Echols appeals from the district court's1  dismissal of his personal injury action for failure to prosecute and to comply with court orders, and the denial of his motion to reconsider. After reviewing the record and the parties' submissions, we conclude that the district court did not abuse its discretion. See Sterling v. United States, 985 F.2d 411, 412 (8th Cir. 1993) (per curiam) (standard of review). Accordingly, the judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Scott O. Wright, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri
