Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 861 F.2d 264 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted: Aug. 29, 1988. Decided: Oct. 21, 1988

Eddie Woodrow Gray, appellant pro se.

Paul Richard Hull (Office of the Attorney General of West Virginia), for appellees.

Before WIDENER, ERVIN and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


Eddie Woodrow Gray appeals from the district court's order granting the defendants' motion for summary judgment. 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. Gray v. Holland, C/A No. 84-205-E(K) (N.D.W. Va. May 17, 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.



To the extent that Gray raises an Eighth Amendment violation, we find that he fails to state a claim as well. See Sweet v. South Carolina Dep't of Corrections, 529 F.2d 854, 860-62 (4th Cir. 1975) (en banc)
