141560P.pdf   07/06/2015  David Meyer and Nancy Meyer  v.  U.S. Bank National Association
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-1560
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Lincoln    
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Riley, Chief Judge, and Smith, Circuit 
   Judge] 
   Civil case - Torts. For the court's prior opinion in the matter, see Meyer 
   v. U.S. Bank Nat'l Ass'n, 715 F.3d 703 (8th Cir. 2013). In this action 
   alleging tortious interference with the plaintiff's contractual relations 
   with a feed supplier, the district court did not err in granting summary 
   judgment based on matters outside the pleadings where all parties were 
   given a change to present material pertinent to the motion; the district 
   court did not err in imposing Rule 11 sanctions against plaintiffs where 
   they repackaged the prior suit under a different cause of action and made 
   claims regarding the trust's status as plaintiff which were contradicted 
   by their contentions in the prior case and the evidence in the record; the 
   trust's appeal of the sanctions order was not frivolous; however, by 
   arguing that the district court erred in granting a Rule 12(b)(6) 
   dismissal when the district court clearly granted summary judgment in the 
   case, and by misrepresenting governing law in their reply brief, 
   plaintiffs had frivolously argued the appeal, and defendant is entitled to 
   double appeals costs as a sanction.

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-2536
   U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Iowa - Des Moines

142844P.pdf   07/06/2015  United States  v.  Lori Jenkins
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-2844
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha    
   [PUBLISHED] [Benton, Author, with Wollman and Smith, Circuit Judges] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law and sentencing. An error in the indictment 
   regarding the amount involved in defendant's prior shoplifting conviction 
   did not affect defendant's substantial rights and the evidence was 
   sufficient to show she had a prior felony conviction; district court's 
   supplemental instruction regarding the definition of a felony under 
   Nebraska law was a clear, neutral and accurate statement of the law and it 
   was not an abuse of the court's discretion to give it; the district court 
   did not err in applying the cross-reference to Guidelines Sec. 2A1.1, and 
   application of the enhancement does not violate Alleyne, Apprendi and 
   Blakely; evidence was sufficient to show the ammunition defendant 
   transferred to her son resulted in four deaths.

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-3077
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha    
   [PUBLISHED] [Benton, Author, with Wollman and Smith, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Employment discrimination. Defendant offered legitimate, 
   non-discriminatory grounds for its promotion decision, and plaintiff 
   failed to show the stated grounds were pretexts for gender discrimination

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-3302

143489U.pdf   07/06/2015  United States  v.  Jorge Munoz-Ramon
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-3489
   U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha    
   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Smith and Benton, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law and sentencing. The district court did not 
   err in finding credible the police officer who testified that he had 
   informed defendant of his Miranda rights and that defendant had waived 
   them before making his confession; no error in admitting notebooks seized 
   from defendant's apartment as the probative value of the drug ledgers 
   contained in the notebooks outweighed any prejudice from their admission; 
   no error in attributing the drugs found in an apartment defendant had 
   rented for the conspiracy; no error in denying an 
   acceptance-of-responsibility reduction where defendant went to trial and 
   put the government to its burden of proof; sentence was not substantively 
   unreasonable.
