Delton L. Dorty, Sr. appeals from the district court's order entering judgment for defendants in accordance with a jury verdict finding that excessive force was not used against Dorty during his arrest. We have carefully considered the record and Dorty's contentions on appeal. We conclude that the verdict was supported by the evidence and this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
