Gerald E. Coffman, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Bill Addington and Bill Winchester, Defendants-appellees, 39 F.3d 1191 (10th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1191 (10th Cir. 1994)

Nov. 4, 1994

Before MOORE, ANDERSON, and KELLY, Circuit Judges.


After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.9. The cause is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.

Gerald E. Coffman appeals an adverse summary judgment as to some defendants and an outright dismissal as to others, in his civil rights suit against the Garfield County Jail and various individuals. We review the disposition below de novo.

After careful consideration of the arguments on appeal and the record below, we conclude that the disposition of this case by the district court was correct and we affirm the district court substantially for the reasons stated in the findings and recommendation of the United States magistrate judge filed April 25, 1994, and the order and separate judgment filed by the district court (adopting the findings and recommendation of the magistrate judge following a de novo review, including a review of Mr. Coffman's objections), on June 30, 1994. The mandate shall issue forthwith.



This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of the court's General Order filed November 29, 1993. 151 F.R.D. 470
