Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 861 F.2d 263 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted March 29, 1988. Decided Oct. 3, 1988

Edward A. Ganey, appellant pro se.

Jacob Leonard Safron, Office of the Attorney General, Robert W. Pope, County Attorney, Wanda M. Copley, County Attorney's Office, for appellees.

Before WIDENER, CHAPMAN, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from its order denying 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. Ganey v. Garrison, C/A No. 87-90-CRT (E.D.N.C. Feb. 17, 1988).



Ganey's complaints about mail censorship are too conclusory to state a claim and, in any event, are time barred, as the last occurrence was in 1981. The complaint in this case was filed in 1987. Ganey's motion for consoliation of this appeal with No. 87-7326, Ganey v. Chester, is denied

We have permitted the filing of Ganey's informal brief on April 20, 1988, and have considered the supplemental authorities and papers submitted by Ganey.
