Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 83 F.3d 425 (8th Cir. 1996) Submitted: April 5, 1996. Filed: April 15, 1996



Robert J. Vinicombe appeals the district court's1  judgment against him for breach of fiduciary duties and the denial of his post-judgment motions. We find no merit to Vinicombe's argument that the trustees were not the proper parties to bring suit against him for misappropriation of the Trust property. We further find no abuse of discretion in the district court's award of punitive damages. After careful review of the record and the parties' briefs, we affirm for the reasons stated in the district court's order. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The HONORABLE HOWARD F. SACHS, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri
