Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota.
Submitted: October 29, 1999
Francis J. Pumper appeals the district court's 1 grant of summary judgment to police officer Paul W. Bartz in Pumper's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and state tort action arising out of his arrest for traffic violations and obstruction of Justice. After de novo review of the record and the parties' submissions, we conclude summary judgment was proper for the reasons stated by the district court. We dismiss Bartz's motion to strike as moot, see Stewart v. Professional Computer Ctrs., Inc., 148 F.3d 937, 940 n.3 (8th Cir. 1998), and we deny Pumper's motion to recuse the district Judge. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
