v.
UNITED STATES of America, Appellee.

No. 94-2442

United States Court of Appeals,
Eighth Circuit.

Submitted: May 18, 1995
Filed: May 25, 1995

56 F.3d 69
NOTICE: Eighth Circuit Rule 28A(k) governs citation of unpublished opinions and provides that no party may cite an opinion not intended for publication unless the cases are related by identity between the parties or the causes of action.

Before BOWMAN, WOLLMAN, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.

1

John Smith, a federal inmate who has been given federal witness security protection, brought a "Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus" against the United States. He claimed that his confinement in a special management unit at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota, violated his constitutional rights. The district court1 dismissed the action, and he appeals.

2

After careful review of the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude that the district court properly denied relief. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. We deny Smith's motion to change the case title to reflect his true name, and also deny his motion for leave to amend the record.
