SUHRHEINRICH, Circuit Judge. Plaintiff-Appellant Heral Howard (“Plaintiff”), as administrator of the estate of Tammy Howard, appeals the grant of summary judgment for Defendants-Appellees Paul Bayes, Pat Montgomery, and Magoffin County Fiscal Court (“Magoffin County”) (collectively, “Defendants”) on Plaintiff’s federal civil rights claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and Plaintiff’s wrongful death claim under Kentucky state law. Because Plaintiff has failed to allege a cognizable procedural due process violation, and because Plaintiff cannot establish a wrongful death claim under Kentucky state law, we AFFIRM.
