No. 95-1738.

United States Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit.

Sept. 16, 1996.

NOTICE: Eighth Circuit Rule 28A(k) governs citation of unpublished opinions and provides that they are not precedent and generally should not be cited unless relevant to establishing the doctrines of res judicata, collateral estoppel, the law of the case, or if the opinion has persuasive value on a material issue and no published opinion would serve as well.

Before WOLLMAN, BEAM, and HANSEN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.

Leonard J. Richards brought this action under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983, 1985, 1988, during his state criminal prosecution, seeking injunctive and declaratory relief. The district court1 granted defendants' motions to dismiss and denied Richards's motion to amend his complaint to add, inter alia, a request for damages. We have carefully reviewed the record, including the parties' briefs, and conclude that the district court correctly dismissed the action and did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion to amend. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. We also deny Richards's motions to supplement the record, as they concern issues presented in his amended complaint.
