Appellate Case: 15-3535 Page: 1 Date Filed: 08/17/2016 Entry ID: 4438322 Frederick Smith appeals the adverse judgment entered by the district court1 in his action asserting claims under, inter alia, 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state law. Upon careful de novo review, we conclude that the district court appropriately disposed of Smith’s claims. See Anderson-Tully Co. v. McDaniel, 571 F.3d 760, 762 (8th Cir. 2009) (grant of motion to dismiss is reviewed de novo); see also 28 U.S.C. § 1367(c)(4) (addressing supplemental jurisdiction); Mireles v. Waco, 502 U.S. 9, 11-12 (1991) (per curiam) (discussing absolute judicial immunity); King v. Beavers, 148 F.3d 1031, 1035 n.4 (8th Cir. 1998) (discussing, inter alia, qualified immunity). Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. We also deny Smith’s pending motions. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable D. P. Marshall Jr., United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas. -2- Appellate Case: 15-3535 Page: 2 Date Filed: 08/17/2016 Entry ID: 4438322
