Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota.

Before BOWMAN, MURPHY, Circuit Judges, and CONMY,1  District Judge.


Martha Chappell sued the Mayo Clinic for breach of its duty of care to keep its premises in a reasonably safe condition. She alleged she suffered injury from a fall in the clinic cafeteria when her shoe stuck on a sticky substance and appeals from the summary judgment granted by the district court2  in favor of the Mayo Clinic. Based on our review of the record, we affirm the judgment on the basis of the district court's opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
