Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 29 F.3d 627 (8th Cir. 1994) Submitted: April 14, 1994. Filed: July 11, 1994

Before LOKEN, Circuit Judge, and ROSS and JOHN R. GIBSON, Senior Circuit Judges.


General Drivers, Warehousemen and Helpers Union, Local No. 421 appeals from the entry of summary judgment against it in its suit to compel arbitration of grievances under its collective bargaining agreement with Spahn and Rose Lumber Company. After Spahn and Rose moved for summary judgment below, the Union made no response to the motion. Northern District of Iowa Local Rule 14(f) provides that "if no resistance is filed [to a motion] the motion may be granted." Accordingly, the district court1  entered judgment for Spahn and Rose. In its appeal from that judgment, the Union has shown no reason why the district court erred in acting under the authority of its local rule. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 83.

The judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Edward J. McManus, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Iowa
