Case Details
Printable Version
Summary:   After an 8th Circuit decision to affirm the district court's summary judgment against Szabla and to reverse the district court’s grant of summary judgment for the City of Brooklyn Park, the City of Brooklyn Park filed a petition requesting a hearing en blanc. The 8th Circuit granted the petition, but limited the en blanc hearing to the issues raised in the city’s petition.  In all other respects, however, the Szabla v. City of Brooklyn Park, Mn., 429 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 2005) panel opinion and judgment were reinstated. For the en blanc hearing, see Szabla v. City of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, 486 F.3d 385 (8th Cir. 2007).

Opinion of the Court:

On December 1, 2005, the court issued a panel opinion and judgment in this matter affirming in part the district court's entry of summary judgment against Appellant Szabla and reversing that portion of the district court's opinion which granted summary judgment for the City of Brooklyn Park on Appellant Szabla's claims under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983. On December 15, 2005, the City of Brooklyn Park filed a petition for rehearing en banc. In its petition for rehearing en banc, the City of Brooklyn Park asked the court to overturn that portion of the December 1, 2005, panel opinion and judgment which reversed the district court's order granting it summary judgment on Szabla's Section 1983 claim. On February 2, 2006, the court granted the City of Brooklyn Park's petition for rehearing en banc and vacated the December 1, 2005, panel opinion and judgment.

It is hereby ordered that the grant of rehearing en banc is limited to the issues raised in the City of Brooklyn Park's petition for rehearing en banc. In all other respects, the panel opinion and judgment of December 1, 2005, are reinstated.
