   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:   13-2545
   U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Sioux City   
[UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Bowman and Kelly, Circuit Judges] Prisoner case - Prisoner civil rights. The district court erred in denying defendants' motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity on plaintiff's excessive force claims as plaintiff's unsworn telephone-hearing statements were not properly submitted under Rule 56(c), and the district court erred, as a matter of law, in relying on those statements in denying the motion for summary judgment; without the statements, the uncontradicted evidence established the force used to restrain plaintiff was objectively reasonable and did not violate his constitutional rights. Judge Kelly, dissenting.
