Richard Peamon, Plaintiff-appellant, v. William Krugsburg, Defendant-appellee, 826 F.2d 1060 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 826 F.2d 1060 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted April 30, 1987. Decided Aug. 12, 1987

Richard Peamon, appellant pro se.

John Henry Lewin, Jr., Venable, Baetjer & Howard; Peter Chatilovicz, Deborah A. Folloni, Seyfarth, Shaw, Fairweather & Geraldson, for appellee.

Before WIDENER, K.K. HALL and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from that court's order refusing relief under 28 U.S.C. § 1332 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. Peamon v. Krugsburg, C/A No. 86-3376 (D. Md., Feb. 19, 1987).

We deny the appellee's request for costs and attorney fees on appeal but note that the filing of frivolous appeals in the future may prompt the imposition of appropriate sanctions. Fed. R. App. P. 38.
