United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Leticia SANDERS Plaintiff - Appellant v. Cleary CHAPMAN, Cpl., in his individual and official capacity as a Trooper for the Arkansas State Police (originally named as Chary Chapman); Erica Shelby, in her individual and official capacity as a Trooper for the Arkansas State Police Defendants - Appellees

No. 18-2927

Decided: March 13, 2020

Before GRUENDER, BEAM, and SHEPHERD, Circuit Judges. Leticia Sanders, Pro Se Vincent P. France, Assistant Attorney General, Maryna O. Jackson, Attorney General's Office, Little Rock, AR, for Defendant-Appellee


Leticia Sanders appeals following the district court’s 1 adverse entry of judgment on a jury verdict in her 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. Having carefully reviewed the parties’ submissions and the record before us on appeal, we conclude that Sanders’s claims are not susceptible to meaningful review because she failed to provide a transcript of the trial proceedings. See Fed. R. App. P. 10(b)(1) (discussing appellant’s duty to order transcript); Schmid v. United Bhd. of Carpenters & Joiners of Am., 827 F.2d 384, 385-86 (8th Cir. 1987) (per curiam) (where pro se appellant did not order trial transcript, appellate court could not review claims of evidentiary error, judicial bias, or insufficiency of evidence). Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


1.   The Honorable James M. Moody Jr., United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas.
