In this action brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1983, Michael Woolman appeals the district court’s1 preservice dismissal of his complaint without prejudice. Upon careful de novo review, we find no basis for reversal. See Moore v. Sims, 200 F.3d 1170, 1171 (8th Cir. 2000) (per curiam) (standard of review); see also Stone v. Harry, 364 F.3d 912, 914 (8th Cir. 2004) (while pro se complaint should be liberally 1 The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the District of Nebraska.
