Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 141 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted Feb. 11, 1998. Filed Feb. 11, 1998

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

Before FAGG, JOHN R. GIBSON, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


Kenneth J. Huls appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment in Huls's action attacking the constitutionality of a state rule that requires six years of documented alcohol abstinence before a motorist involved in three alcoholic-related traffic violations is eligible for reinstatement of driving privileges. Having reviewed the record and the parties' submissions, we conclude that Huls has failed to show a protected property interest or a violation of his constitutional rights. We affirm the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

Huls's motion for an expedited decision is granted.
