Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 94 F.3d 649 (8th Cir. 1996) Submitted Aug. 7, 1996. Filed Aug. 14, 1996



Former Nebraska State Penitentiary inmate Wa'il Mansur Muhannad brought this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action, alleging defendant prison officials violated his Fourth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights in conjunction with the performance of a strip search. Following an evidentiary hearing, the district court1  granted defendants judgment, and Muhannad appeals. Having carefully reviewed the record--including the evidentiary hearing transcript, a transcript of Muhannad's deposition testimony, and a videotape of the search--and the parties' briefs, we conclude no error of law or fact exists.

Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Richard G. Kopf, United States District Judge for the District of Nebraska, adopting the report and recommendation of the Honorable David L. Piester, United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Nebraska
