Decided: October 07, 2019

Before GRUENDER, STRAS, and KOBES, Circuit Judges. Patt McGuire, Pro Se Lorena Victoria Merklin von Kaenel, St. Louis County Counselor's Office, Saint Louis, MO, for Defendants-Appellees


Patt McGuire appeals following the district court’s 1 dismissal of her employment discrimination action as a sanction for failing to comply with a discovery order. After careful review of the record and the parties’ arguments on appeal, we find no basis for reversal. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. We also grant appellees’ motion to substitute counsel, deny as moot appellees’ motion to strike McGuire’s reply brief, and deny McGuire’s pending motions.


1.   The Honorable Catherine D. Perry, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri.
