Bryan McKinley; James Drew; Christopher Foy; P.J. Vaitheswaran; Richard Doyle; J.J. McDonald; Emily Pederson; Vicki Pederson; Brian Pederson; John Sorenson; William Morrison; Earl Kavanaugh lllllllllllllllllllll Defendants - Appellees ____________ Appeal from United States District Court for the Northern District of Iowa, Waterloo ____________ Submitted: August 18, 2016 Filed: August 23, 2016 [Unpublished] ____________ Before WOLLMAN, ARNOLD, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Appellate Case: 16-1209 Page: 1 Date Filed: 08/23/2016 Entry ID: 4440281 Scott Meyer filed a civil complaint raising claims under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983 and 1985 arising out of child-custody proceedings. The district court1 granted defendants’ motions to dismiss under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6), and this appeal followed. Having conducted de novo review of the record before us, and carefully considered the parties’ submissions on appeal, we conclude that the district court properly dismissed the complaint for the reasons explained in the court’s thorough memorandum opinion. See Gomez v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., 676 F.3d 655, 660 (8th Cir. 2012) (dismissal for failure to state claim upon which relief could be granted); Edwards v. City of Jonesboro, 645 F.3d 1014, 1017 (8th Cir. 2011) (dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction). We also conclude that the court did not abuse its discretion in denying leave to amend the complaint. See Ginsburg v. InBev NV/SA, 623 F.3d 1229, 1236 (8th Cir. 2010). The judgment of the district court is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable Linda R. Reade, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Northern District of Iowa. -2- Appellate Case: 16-1209 Page: 2 Date Filed: 08/23/2016 Entry ID: 4440281
