US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 806 F.2d 258 (4th Cir. 1986)

Submitted Oct. 6, 1986. Decided Nov. 28, 1986

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia, at Elkins. Robert E. Maxwell, Chief District Judge. (C/A No. 85-166-E)

William B. Westfall, appellant pro se.

Betsy C. Steinfeld, Assistant United States Attorney on brief, for appellee.

N.D.W. Va.


Before HALL, SPROUSE and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal from its order refusing relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 is without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument and affirm the judgment below on the reasoning of the district court. Westfall v. Heckler, C/A No. 85-166-E (N.D.WV, March 21, 1986).
