152070P.pdf   06/28/2016  Donnie Cooper  v.  General American Life Ins. Co.
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-2070
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Jonesboro    
   [PUBLISHED] [Shepherd, Author, with Wollman and Benton, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case. When the transfer of plaintiff's annuity was delayed, he did 
   not suffer a loss covered by Ark. Code Ann. Sections 23-79-208 and 
   23-79-209, and the district court correctly determined that neither a 12% 
   penalty nor attorney's fees are owing by defendant under the cited 
   sections; plaintiff was not entitled to attorney's fees under Ark. Code 
   Ann. Section 16-22-308 or Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(c) 
  
152447P.pdf   06/28/2016  United States  v.  Michael Lindsey
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-2447
   U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota - St. Paul    
   [PUBLISHED] [Shepherd, Author, with Beam and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Criminal case - Sentencing. The only timely objection defendant filed to 
   the presentence report did not object to the fact of the prior 
   convictions, and the district court did not clearly err in recognizing the 
   three second-degree assault convictions listed in the PSR and basing the 
   sentence on them; defendant's three prior second-degree assault 
   convictions qualified as violent felonies for purposes of sentencing under 
   the Armed Career Criminal Act, as the statute requires the use, attempted 
   use or threatened use of physical force against another - see U.S. v. 
   Schaffer, 818 F3d 796 (8th Cir. 2016).

   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Murphy, Bowman and Benton, Circuit 
   Judges]

   revocation of defendant's supervised release was substantively reasonable.
