Richard A. Howell, Plaintiff-appellant, v. United States of America, Defendant-appellee, 852 F.2d 565 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 852 F.2d 565 (4th Cir. 1988)

Submitted: June 30, 1988. Decided: July 18, 1988

Richard A. Howell, appellant pro se.

John F. Kane (Office of the U.S. Attorney), for appellee.

Before MURNAGHAN, DONALD RUSSELL and K.K. HALL, Circuit Judges.


Richard A. Howell appeals from the district court's order entering judgment in favor of the United States in Howell's Federal Tort Claims Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1346(b), 2671-2680, action. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Howell v. United States, CA-86-117-N (E.D. Va. Nov. 23, 1987). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
