153744P.pdf   03/21/2017  United States  v.  Steven Hudson
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-3744
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - Cape Girardeau    
   [PUBLISHED] [Colloton, Author, Melloy and Shepherd, Circuit Judges] 
   Criminal case - Sentencing. This court's decision in U.S. v. Pulliam, 566 
   F.3d 784 (8th Cir. 2009) is still controlling law, and the district court 
   correctly determined that defendant's conviction for unlawful use of a 
   firearm under Mo. Rev. Stat. Sec. 571.030.1(4) is a crime of violence 
   under the force clause of Guidelines Sec. 4B1.2(a)(1). 
  
153801P.pdf   03/21/2017  Mandy Liles  v.  C.S. McCrossan, Inc.
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-3801
   U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Shepherd, Author, with Gruender and Beam, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Employment Discrimination. Plaintiff's complaints about 
   discrimination against a fellow female employee and inappropriate conduct 
   by a male co-worker were too distant in time to establish causation and 
   retaliation for protected conduct; nor was there evidence from which a 
   jury could infer a discriminatory motive and plaintiff could not establish 
   the causation element of her prima facie case of retaliation and reprisal; 
   with respect to her gender discrimination claim, the district court did 
   not err in concluding that, assuming plaintiff made a prima facie case, 
   defendant had established a legitimate, non-discriminatory ground for her 
   discharge which plaintiff failed to show was a pretext for gender 
   discrimination; with respect to plaintiff's hostile work environment 
   claim, she failed to show that the harassment affected a term, condition 
   or privilege of her employment. 
  
161334P.pdf   03/21/2017  United States  v.  Eric Price
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-1334
   U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri - Kansas City    
   [PUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Riley, Smith and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Criminal case - Sentencing. The district court did not err in determining 
   defendant's conviction for attempted-aggravated-assault under Kan. Stat. 
   Ann. Sec. 21-3410(a) (2007) required violent force and fell within the 
   force clause of Guidelines Sec. 4B1.2(a); no error in imposing an 
   enhancement under Guidelines Sec. 2K2.1(b)(6)(B) based on the district 
   court's finding defendant possessed the firearm in connection with another 
   felony (possession of marijuana).

   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Riley, Wollman and Smith, Circuit

   Criminal case - Sentencing. The district court considered defendant's 
   proposed mitigating factors and imposed a sentence it believed to be 
   sufficient but not greater than necessary, and the sentence is affirmed.
