   U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri - Kansas City    
   [PUBLISHED] [Wollman, Author, with Melloy and Colloton, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Contracts. The district court did not err in granting 
   defendant's motion for summary judgment on plaintiff's breach-of-agreement 
   claim as the draft statement of work plaintiff relied on was not part of a 
   written contract and did not include the Agreement's incorporation clause; 
   plaintiff's damages claim was liquidated and under Missouri law plaintiff 
   was entitled to prejudgment interest; assuming the district court issue a 
   sua sponte summary judgment on plaintiff's actual-costs contract claim, 
   defendant had adequate notice and the district court did not err in ruling 
   as it did; challenges to evidentiary rulings rejected; challenges to jury 
   instructions rejected; the district court did not err in denying 
   defendant's motion for judgment as a matter of law as a reasonable jury 
   could find the parties had formed a contract for defendant to pay 
   plaintiff's actual costs; the evidence was sufficient for the jury to find 
   plaintiff was entitled to $138,223; the district court did not err in 
   denying defendant's motion for an award of attorneys' fees as neither 
   plaintiff nor defendant was the prevailing party.

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-3048
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Little Rock    
   [PUBLISHED] [Benton, Author, with Smith and Gruender, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Civil case - Bankruptcy.  The district court did not err in 
   determining Roussel's judgment debt was not dischargeable under 
   11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a)(6); the court did nor err in finding the state 
   court jury verdict on punitive damages collaterally estopped Roussel 
   from challenging the malice requirement of Section 523(a)(6), and 
   the undisputed evidence showed that Roussel acted willfully; nor did 
   the district court err in concluding the state court award of 
   attorneys' fees was not dischargeable and could not be apportioned 
   between the dischargeable and nondischargeable portions of the 
   underlying debt.
