In a civil rights and wrongful death action involving the death of a prison inmate, district court's grant of summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) the county's booking policy at the time of plaintiff's father's murder was not unconstitutional; and 2) plaintiffs failed to show that the county's decision to maintain the policy was made with deliberate indifference to its known or obvious consequences and that the county had any notice that its booking policy was so inadequate that a constitutional violation was inevitable.
