DESOTO COUNTY JAIL OF HERNANDO; STATE OF MISSISSIPPI; MEDICAL STAFF AND POLICE OFFICERS, DeSoto County Jail of Hernando, Mississippi; SERGEANT FERGUSON; BRANDON; SHERRI; WALTER; PATRICIA; LIEUTENANT BLONDEE, Defendants-Appellees Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi USDC No. 3:13-CV-226 Before JONES, WIENER, and CLEMENT, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * Patricia Cox filed this suit to challenge alleged violations of her rights that occurred while she was jailed. The district court dismissed the suit after determining, inter alia, that she had failed to serve the defendants with process. Cox does not address the propriety of the district court’s conclusion Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 15-60421 Document: 00513815620 Page: 2 Date Filed: 12/29/2016 No. 15-60421 that the suit should be dismissed for want of service. Because Cox has failed to identify any error in the district court’s analysis of the question whether her suit should be dismissed for want of service, she has waived this issue. See Hughes v. Johnson, 191 F.3d 607, 613 (5th Cir. 1999); Brinkmann v. Dallas County Sheriff Abner, 813 F.2d 744, 748 (5th Cir. 1987).
