Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 116 F.3d 481 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted June 3, 1997. Decided June 11, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa.



Leonard Wrieden, an Iowa inmate, filed a pro se 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint alleging that correctional officer John Lambert injured Wrieden while using a pain-compliance hold on him. After appointing counsel for Wrieden and holding a bench trial, the district court1  entered judgment for Lambert, and this appeal followed. Having carefully reviewed the parties' briefs and the record, we affirm the judgment of the

district court and conclude that an extended opinion would have no precedential value. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

Accordingly, we affirm.


The Honorable Celeste F. Bremer, United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Iowa, to whom the case was referred for final disposition by consent of the parties pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c)
