Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987)

Submitted Nov. 24, 1986. Decided Jan. 21, 1987

Before HALL and WIDENER, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

Clifton Dallas Bell, appellant pro se.

William W. Muse, Office of the Attorney General, for appellees.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that an appeal from its order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 is without merit. Leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. 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. Bell v. Ratliff, C/A No. 86-311-N (E.D. Va., Sept. 23, 1986).
