Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Lorraine BLACK Plaintiff - Appellant v. LIFE UNLIMITED/CONCERN CARE Defendant - Appellee State of Missouri Department of Mental Health Defendant

No. 18-1258

Decided: October 17, 2018

Before WOLLMAN, GRUENDER, and STRAS, Circuit Judges. Lorraine Black, Pro Se Steven Howard Schwartz, Teresa Michelle Young, Brown & James, Saint Louis, MO, for Defendant - Appellee


Lorraine Black appeals after the district court 1 dismissed her civil rights action, upon the motion of defendant Life Unlimited/Concern Care. Upon careful de novo review, we conclude that the district court did not err in granting defendant's motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6), see Kelly v. City of Omaha, 813 F.3d 1070, 1075 (8th Cir. 2016) (setting forth the standard of review); see also Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662, 677-78, 129 S.Ct. 1937, 173 L.Ed.2d 868 (2009) (discussing the pleading standard under Fed. R. Civ. P. 8), and we find no other basis for reversal.

Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


1.   The Honorable Dean Whipple, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri.
