Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 69 F.3d 542 (8th Cir. 1995) Submitted Nov. 7, 1995. Filed Nov. 9, 1995

Before BOWMAN, BEAM, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


William H. Whetstine appeals from the district court's1  order granting summary judgment to Iowa Department of Corrections officials in this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Whetstine claimed that defendants were deliberately indifferent to his serious medical needs relating to his rectal cancer. Having carefully reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude the district court correctly entered judgment in favor of defendants. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

We need not address the issue Whetstine raises for the first time on appeal concerning his other medical problems. See Schafer v. Moore, 46 F.3d 43, 45 (8th Cir. 1995) (per curiam).

Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court.


The Honorable Mark W. Bennett, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Iowa
