Frederick James Davis Plaintiff-Appellant.
St. Louis County; Charles Dooley; Julia Childrey; Fred Rottnek Defendants-Appellees.
Submitted: August 30, 2013
Appeal from United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - St. Louis.
Before WOLLMAN, GRUENDER, and BENTON, Circuit Judges.
Frederick James Davis appeals following the district court's adverse entry of judgment on a jury verdict in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Davis's assertions of error are vague and conclusory, however, see Milligan v. City of Red Oak, Iowa, 230 F.3d 355, 360 (8th Cir. 2000) (per curiam) (where party fails to support assertion with argument or legal authority, issue is deemed waived), or require a trial transcript for meaningful review, see Kelly v. Omaha Hous. Auth., 721 F.3d 560, 562 (8th Cir. 2013) (it is appellant's duty to order trial transcript; it is important to reviewing court that appellant bring before court all parts of proceedings below necessary for determination as to validity of claimed error). The judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
