Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1184 (8th Cir. 1994)

Submitted: Oct. 10, 1994. Filed: Oct. 27, 1994

Before McMILLIAN and BOWMAN, Circuit Judges, and HENLEY, Senior Circuit Judge.


Derek Dixon appeals the dismissal of his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint. The District Court determined that the appeal is legally frivolous and denied Dixon leave to appeal in forma pauperis. The case is now before this Court on the question whether leave to proceed in forma pauperis should be granted.

Having reviewed the original District Court file, this Court finds the appeal legally frivolous and entirely without merit. Accordingly, leave to proceed in forma pauperis is denied and the appeal is dismissed. See 8th Cir. R. 47A(a).

Judge Henley would grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
