Jonathan Alan Rix, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Jim Welch; J.e. Sanders; Don Latham; Edward Grannis;john Dickson; James R. Parish; George T.griffin, Defendants-appellees, 822 F.2d 55 (4th Cir. 1987)Annotate this Case
Before RUSSELL and SPROUSE, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Jonathan Alan Rix, appellant pro se.
Daniel T. Perry, III; Jacob Leonard Safron, Special Deputy Attorney General; Douglas A. Johnston, Assistant Attorney General, 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.* Rix v. Welch, C/A No. 85-851-CRT (E.D.N.C., Dec. 5, 1986).
Rix properly filed a motion to file a late notice of appeal which was granted by the district court; thus the appellees' motion to dismiss the appeal as untimely is denied
