Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 141 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted March 20, 1998. Filed April 7, 1998

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas.

Virgil O. Hooker, Dora E. Hooker, David O. Hooker, and Gloria J. Hooker sued an Arkansas state judge, alleging he had violated their constitutional rights by making certain rulings in a prior foreclosure action brought against the Hookers. The district court1  granted, on the basis of absolute judicial immunity, defendant's motion to dismiss, and denied the Hookers' postjudgment motions. Having carefully reviewed the record, we conclude the district court's rulings were clearly correct. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47A(a).


The Honorable Susan Webber Wright, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas
