132179P.pdf   08/20/2014  Travis Gibson  v.  Rick Cook
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  13-2179
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - Cape Girardeau    
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Murphy and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil Case - civil rights. District court did not err in granting 
   defendants summary judgment on civil rights claims brought against 
   arresting officers, the city of Dexter, the public defender, the probation 
   officers and two county sheriffs. Probable cause existed to arrest Gibson 
   in January and April 2008, there was insufficient evidence of a conspiracy 
   between the public defender and prosecutor, there was probable cause to 
   arrest Gibson for violating probation in May, and the sheriffs were not 
   deliberately indifferent to defer to instructions from the Department of 
   Corrections. Claims against the City of Dexter are without merit. 
  
132686P.pdf   08/20/2014  Leanna Peoples  v.  Stuart Radloff
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  13-2686
   Appeal from the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Eighth Circuit    
   [PUBLISHED] [Colloton, Author, with Bye and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Bankruptcy Case - standing. Debtor lacked standing to object to settlement 
   approved between trustee and employer, where the amount of the debt 
   exceeded the amount of the settlement. Debtor lacked a pecuniary interest 
   in the bankruptcy court's order. 
  
133000P.pdf   08/20/2014  K.B.  v.  Michael Waddle
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  13-3000
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - Hannibal    
   [PUBLISHED] [Colloton, Author, with Murphy and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil Case - civil rights. Claims of due process violations against 
   officials who were told of threat of sexual assault against a minor and 
   who failed to inform the minor's parents before victim was assaulted, were 
   properly dismissed. Failure to protect an individual against private 
   violence does not violate the constitution and the exceptions did not 
   apply here. Victim was not in state custody, state did not create the 
   danger, and neither the victim nor the assaulter weres under state 
   supervision. Officials did not take affirmative action to increase danger 
   to victim. Officials were entitled to official immunity on state law 
   negligence claims because the duty to act was discretionary.

   case is remanded for the district court to make findings of fact and 
   conclusions of law sufficient to permit appellate review of the 
   defendants' qualified immunity defense.
