U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 825 F.2d 409 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted May 28, 1987. Decided July 27, 1987

James E. Williams, appellant pro se.

William Alfred Blancato, Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice, for appellees.

Before PHILLIPS, MURNAGHAN 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. Williams v. Dow, C/A No. 86-668-CRT (E.D.N.C., Jan. 28, 1987).
