John Anthony Spencer Plaintiff - Appellant v. Warden FPC Duluth; CO Anderson; CO Baker; CO Gravdal; CO Brian H; Unknown CO with COBaker on 12-19-12; Mail Room Staff of Dec. 12, 2012; FPC Duluth; Chris Nickrenz; Patrick Thyen Defendants - Appellees

No. 16-4142

    Decided: September 21, 2017

Before GRUENDER, BENTON, and KELLY, Circuit Judges.

Federal inmate John Spencer appeals the district court's 1 adverse grant of summary judgment in his civil rights action filed under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). Following careful de novo review of the record, we agree with the district court that defendants were entitled to summary judgment on Spencer's due process, denial-of-court-access, and retaliation claims for the reasons cited in the magistrate judge's report. We also find no abuse of discretion in the denial of appointment of counsel. The judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


1.   The Honorable Joan N. Ericksen, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota, adopting the report and recommendations of the Honorable Janie S. Mayeron, United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Minnesota.
