Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 836 F.2d 546 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Nov. 30, 1987. Decided Dec. 30, 1987

Lewis O. Ferguson, appellant pro se.

William Fain Rutherford, Jr., William Beverly Poff, Woods, Rogers & Hazelgrove, for appellees.

Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS and ERVIN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from that court's order finding plaintiff's claims to be minor disputes within the exclusive jurisdiction of the National Railroad Adjustment Board 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. Ferguson v. Roanoke Valley Psychiatric Center, C/A Nos. 87-98, 87-68, 87-87 (W.D. Va. June 30, 1987).
