Geoffrey M. Baynard, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Otis R. Bowen, Secretary, Department of Health and Humanservices, Defendant- Appellee, 838 F.2d 465 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 838 F.2d 465 (4th Cir. 1988)

Submitted: Nov. 30, 1987. Decided: Jan. 12, 1988


Geoffrey M. Baynard, pro se.

Deborah Fitzgerald, Office of the General Counsel, for appellee.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN, and SPROUSE, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from that court's order accepting the magistrate's recommendation and affirming the final decision of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services 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. Baynard v. Bowen, C/A No. 86-0444 (E.D. Va., Mar. 23, 1987).
