Lorraine Black appeals after the district court1 dismissed her civil rights action, upon the motion of defendant Life Unlimited/Concern Care. Upon careful de novo review, we conclude that the district court did not err in granting defendant’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6), see Kelly v. City of Omaha, 813 F.3d 1070, 1075 (8th Cir. 2016) (setting forth the standard of review); see also Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 677-78 (2009) (discussing the pleading standard under Fed. R. Civ. P. 8), and we find no other basis for reversal. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable Dean Whipple, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri. -2-
