Federal inmate The-Nimrod Sterling appeals the district court's 1 adverse grant of summary judgment in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action arising from his incarceration at a county jail. Viewing the evidence in a light most favorable to Sterling, and giving him the benefit of all reasonable inferences, we agree with the district court that summary judgment was warranted. See Murchison v. Rogers, 779 F.3d 882, 886-87 (8th Cir. 2015) (de novo review). We find no merit to Sterling's challenges to the other adverse orders he identifies. The judgment of the district court is affirmed, see 8th Cir. R. 47B, but we clarify the dismissal is without prejudice as to the state-law claims Sterling raised in the amended complaint at issue here.
