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

Submitted: June 14, 1988. Decided: July 18, 1988

John A. Dillard, appellant pro se.

Dennis Patrick Lacy, Jr., Kathleen Shepherd Mehfoud (Lacy & Mehfoud, PC), for appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, WIDENER and ERVIN, Circuit Judges.


John A. Dillard appeals from the magistrate's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Our review of the record and the magistrate's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the magistrate. Dillard v. Harper, C/A No. 88-84-R (E.D. Va. Apr. 5, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
