Louis Dewayne Helton; Curtis Davis; Frank Ciliberto, Appellees, 141 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 1998)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
Before McMILLIAN, LOKEN, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.
William Eugene Dunn and Sherry Lyn Steffens Cavaness appeal from the final judgment entered in the District Court1 for the Eastern District of Missouri following an adverse jury verdict in their 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Upon a careful review of the record and the parties' submissions on appeal, we believe the district court did not err in granting defendant Louis Dewayne Helton's motion in limine, in denying Dunn's and Cavaness's motion in limine, in granting judgment as a matter of law to defendants Curtis Davis and Frank Ciliberto on Dunn's and Cavaness's "failure to intervene" claim, and in denying Dunn's and Cavaness's motion for a new trial. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
The Honorable Catherine D. Perry, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri
