Marcia Sharon Neal appeals the district court's adverse grant of summary judgment in Neal's action to recover for injuries sustained in a purse-snatching incident in front of a Walgreen's store. We review a grant of summary judgment under a well-established standard. Because this is a diversity action, we review de novo questions of state law. Having considered the record and the parties' briefs, we are satisfied the district court correctly applied the controlling law and the record supports the district court's ruling. Because a comprehensive opinion in this diversity case would lack precedential value, we affirm on the basis of the magistrate judge's ruling without further discussion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
