Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 816 F.2d 673 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Feb. 23, 1987. Decided April 14, 1987

Before RUSSELL, HALL and SPROUSE, Circuit Judges.

John Joseph Simmons, appellant pro se.

O. Allen Alexander, for appellees.


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. Simmons v. Brown, C/A No. 86-931 (D.S.C., Dec. 22, 1986).
