Buster Joe Ball, Appellant, v. Lonnie Nichols, Sheriff of Carroll County, Arkansas; Earlhyatt, Jail Administrator, Carroll County Jail, Appellee, 48 F.3d 1223 (8th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 48 F.3d 1223 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted: Feb. 9, 1995. Filed: Mar. 1, 1995

Before McMILLIAN, LOKEN and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.


Buster Joe Ball, a pretrial detainee, appeals from the final order entered in the District Court1  for the Western District of Arkansas, dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action following an evidentiary hearing. Ball claimed that he was denied the right to chew tobacco in the jail while other inmates and jailers were permitted to do so. Because the judgment of the district court is based on findings of fact that are not clearly erroneous and no error of law appears, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
