Submitted: July 28, 1994. Filed: August 9, 1994
Before MAGILL, LOKEN, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.
John B. Marks appeals the dismissal of his diversity abuse-of- process action against two pastors of his church following a jury verdict in favor of the pastors. On appeal, Marks argues that the district court1 abused its discretion in making two evidentiary rulings. After careful review of the record, we conclude that there was no "clear and prejudicial abuse of discretion" by the district court. Duncan v. Wells, 23 F.3d 1322, 1324 (8th Cir. 1994). Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. Rule 47B.
The HONORABLE DONALD E. O'BRIEN, Senior United States District Judge for the Northern District of Iowa
