Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 838 F.2d 467 (4th Cir. 1987)

Aug. 26, 1987

Philemon K. Platt, pro se.

Phillip Dunn; Robert E. Farnell, III; Emory E. Tamplin, Jr., for appellees.

Before SPROUSE and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Philemon K. Platt appeals from the district court's dismissal of his complaint. We affirm.

By order of 3 May 1985 the district judge dismissed Platt's complaint for reasons stated in open court at a hearing on 1 May 1985. Platt has failed to provide this court with a transcript despite being warned that a transcript was necessary for full consideration of his appeal.

After an examination of the record prepared by the district court clerk and the briefs submitted by the parties, we find no legal error in this case. The judgment is affirmed. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues have recently been decided authoritatively.
