Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 809 F.2d 785 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Sept. 24, 1986. Decided Jan. 5, 1987

Vernon Wayne Mauldin, appellant pro se.



Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. John D. Larkins, Jr., District Judge. (C/A No. 86-750-CRT).

Before RUSSELL, WIDENER, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from its order denying 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. Mauldin v. Thibaut, C/A No. 86-750-CRT (E.D.N.C., July 24, 1986).
