US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 29 F.3d 627 (8th Cir. 1994) Submitted: July 7, 1994. Filed: July 13, 1994

Before BOWMAN, LOKEN, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


Richard O. Gooden, Jr., appeals from the District Court's1  final order of April 12, 1993, granting summary judgment in this action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and various Arkansas statutes. As to Tommy J. Adkins, Steven K. Hearn, Robert W. Levy, and John Does, we dismiss the appeal because they are not proper parties. As to the remaining appellees, after having carefully reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude that no error of fact or law appears and that an opinion would lack precedential value. Thus, we affirm the judgment of the District Court without further discussion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Henry Woods, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas
