Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 133 F.3d 921 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted Jan. 14, 1998. Filed Feb. 4, 1998

Before BOWMAN and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges, and JONES,1  District Judge.


Charles Crawford appeals the order of the District Court2  granting summary judgment for the defendant in Crawford's civil rights action, which challenged an administrative modification of Crawford's child-support obligation. In his complaint, Crawford asserted claims based on the Fourteenth Amendment, the Supremacy Clause, and federal statutes and regulations. Crawford also seeks review of an order of the District Court denying him leave to amend his complaint.

Having reviewed the case, we find neither any error of law nor abuse of discretion in the challenged rulings. The judgment of the District Court is AFFIRMED. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
