Before FAGG, LOKEN, and ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.
Flora Rosalind Guy appeals from an adverse judgment following a bench trial in her Title VII employment discrimination action. On appeal, Guy contends the district court improperly denied her request retroactively to invoke the additional damages and jury trial provisions of Section 102 of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, 42 U.S.C. § 1981a. Guy's contention, however, is foreclosed by the Supreme Court's recent decision in Landgraf v. USI Film Products, 114 S. Ct. 1483, 1505-08 (1994), and our holdings in Polacco v. Curators of the University of Missouri, 37 F.3d 366, 370(8th Cir.
1994), and Wright v. General Dynamics Corp., 23 F.3d 1478, 1479 (8th Cir. 1994). An extended discussion of Guy's contention would serve no useful purpose because the controlling law is clear. We thus affirm the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
