Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 124 F.3d 209 (8th Cir. 1997) Submitted Aug. 4, 1997. Decided Aug. 18, 1997

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

Before FAGG, BOWMAN, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


Roy G. Watson appeals the judgment of the District Court1  in favor of defendants after a bench trial. Having reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude the judgment of the District Court is correct. None of the court's factual findings is reversible under the clear error standard, which governs our review of facts found by the trial court. Watson's argument concerning the effect of his FECA claim lacks merit. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Joseph E. Stevens, Jr., United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri
