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). 161087U.pdf 06/28/2016 United States v.

Anders case. Sentence imposed upon the revocation of defendant's supervised release was substantively reasonable.
