David G. Hawkins, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Otis R. Bowen, Secretary of Health and Human Services,defendant-appellee, 854 F.2d 1317 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 854 F.2d 1317 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted April 28, 1988. Decided Aug. 4, 1988

David G. Hawkins, appellant pro se.

Gurney Wingate Grant, II Office of United States Attorney, for appellee.

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


David G. Hawkins appeals from the district court's order finding substantial evidence to support the Secretary's denial of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) social security disability benefits. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Hawkins v. Bowen, C/A No. 84-896-R (E.D. Va. Jan. 22, 1988). 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.
