Benjamin Joyner, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Andrew Riley, Chief, Warden Horton, Defendants-appellees, 838 F.2d 466 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 838 F.2d 466 (4th Cir. 1988)

Submitted Dec. 18, 1987. Decided Jan. 26, 1988

Benjamin Joyner, appellant pro se.

Robert Peterson, South Carolina Department of Corrections, for appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


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. Joyner v. Riley, C/A No. 3:87-254-K (D.S.C. Oct. 8, 1987).
