Ansel Card; James Washington, Appellees, 67 F.3d 303 (8th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 67 F.3d 303 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted: Sept. 6, 1995. Filed: Sept. 26, 1995

Before WOLLMAN, MAGILL, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.


Ronald Lalk appeals from the district court's1  order dismissing his complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d). Having carefully reviewed the record, we conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in dismissing Lalk's complaint, because it contains no nonfrivolous claims. See Neitzke v. Williams, 490 U.S. 319, 325 (1989) (complaint is frivolous if it lacks an arguable basis in either law or fact); Robinson v. Cavanaugh, 20 F.3d 892, 894 (8th Cir. 1994) (per curiam) (standard of review). Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Scott O. Wright, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri, adopting the report and recommendation of the Honorable William A. Knox, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Missouri
