Submitted Oct. 7, 1999.

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Before BEAM, LOKEN, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.

[UNPUBLISHED]

PER CURIAM.

William H. Viehweg appeals the district court's 1 adverse grant of summary judgment in his diversity legal malpractice action against attorney Susan Mello.

Ford Motor Co., 112 F.3d 962, 965 (8th Cir.1997), we conclude summary judgment was proper. We believe an extended opinion is unnecessary, and we affirm the judgment of the district court.
