[UNPUBLISHED] Date Filed: 07/17/2012 Entry ID: 3932386 ___________ Submitted: May 15, 2012 Filed: July 17, 2012 ___________ Before RILEY, Chief Judge, SMITH and COLLOTON, Circuit Judges. ___________ PER CURIAM. Steven E. Uhr appeals pro se from a final order entered in the United States District Court1 for the District of Minnesota granting the 22 named defendants' motions to dismiss pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6). In his second amended complaint, Uhr alleged that the defendants engaged in a nationwide price-fixing conspiracy to eliminate happy hours and other drink specials. According to Uhr, the defendants' alleged acts gave rise to claims under the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), 18 U.S.C. § 1962(c). The district court concluded that the second amended complaint failed to properly allege the existence of a conspiracy or any predicate acts of racketeering activity. Having carefully reviewed the record and the applicable legal principles, we find no error in the district court's disposition of this matter. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47(B). ______________________________ 1 The Honorable Patrick J. Schiltz, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota. -2- Appellate Case: 11-3184 Page: 2 Date Filed: 07/17/2012 Entry ID: 3932386
