Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 869 F.2d 594 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted: Dec. 30, 1988. Decided: Feb. 16, 1989

John Calvin Ruffin, appellant pro se.

Richard Francis Gorman, III (Office of the Attorney General of Virginia), for appellees.

Before SPROUSE, CHAPMAN and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


John Calvin Ruffin appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. 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. Ruffin v. Johnson, C/A No. 87-517-AM (E.D. Va. Oct. 4, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
