132545U.pdf 10/30/2014 Eddie Risdal v. Mike Nixon U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 13-2545 U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Sioux City [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Bowman and Kelly, Circuit Judges] Prisoner case - Prisoner civil rights. The district court erred in denying defendants' motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity on plaintiff's excessive force claims as plaintiff's unsworn telephone-hearing statements were not properly submitted under Rule 56(c), and the district court erred, as a matter of law, in relying on those statements in denying the motion for summary judgment; without the statements, the uncontradicted evidence established the force used to restrain plaintiff was objectively reasonable and did not violate his constitutional rights. Judge Kelly, dissenting. 133094P.pdf 10/30/2014 Kevin Jones v.
