141421P.pdf   11/26/2014  United States  v.  Adam Chartier
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-1421
   U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Cedar Rapids    
   [PUBLISHED] [Wollman, Author, with Riley, Chief Judge, and Bye, Circuit 
   Judge] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law. The police had an articulable and 
   objectively reasonable suspicion that a motorist without a valid license 
   was operating a vehicle, and the officer's decision to make a traffic stop 
   did not violate the Fourth Amendment; the officer had the necessary 
   suspicion to expand the scope and range of the stop once he saw muriatic 
   acid and tubing in the car, and the use of a drug dog was permissible; the 
   officer's knowledge of defendant's history and the facts of the stop 
   justified a pat-down search for purposes of officer safety; fact that the 
   officer could not find drugs in the car after the dog alerted justified a 
   search of defendant's person since those facts made it more likely that 
   any drugs that had been in the car were on defendant's person. 
  
141562U.pdf   11/26/2014  Stephen Curtiss  v.  Mary Benson
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-1562
   U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Sioux City    
   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Colloton, Bowman and Shepherd, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Prisoner case - Prisoner civil rights. The defendant nurses were entitled 
   to summary judgment based on qualified immunity on plaintiff's claim for 
   damages based on the denial of dentures, as there was nothing in the 
   record to suggest that either defendant knew and ignored that plaintiff 
   was in pain, much less severe pain, as a result of his lack of teeth.

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-2694
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Helena    
   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Gruender, Benton and Kelly, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Prisoner case - Bivens action. The district court did not err in 
   dismissing plaintiff's Bivens action for failure to exhaust administrative 
   remedies. 
  
146016P.pdf   11/26/2014  GE Capital Commercial, Inc.  v.  Sylva Corporation, Inc.
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-6016
   U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Saladino, Author, with Federman, Chief Judge, and Shodeen, 
   Bankruptcy Judge] 
   Bankruptcy Appellate Panel. The written record supports GE Capital's 
   request that its motion seeking an administrative expense claim be 
   considered under 11 U.S.C. Section 365, and the bankruptcy court, by 
   declining to consider the motion under 11 U.S.C. Section 365(d)(5), 
   shifted the burden of proof from the objecting party to the claimant, 
   which was erroneous as a matter of law; remanded for further proceedings.
