Lindsay Williams, Jr., Plaintiff-appellant, v. Harris-teeter Supermarkets, Inc., Defendant-appellee, 869 F.2d 595 (4th Cir. 1989)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 869 F.2d 595 (4th Cir. 1989)

Submitted: Jan. 3, 1989. Decided: Feb. 16, 1989


Lindsay Williams, Jr., appellant pro se.

Paul Bradford Taylor, John Oliver Pollard (Blakeney, Alexander & Machen), for appellee.

Before K.K. HALL, JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


Lindsay Williams, Jr., appeals from the district court's judgment denying him relief under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e et seq., and the Civil Rights Act of 1866, 42 U.S.C. § 1981. Upon review of the record presently before the Court, we find no error in the district court's determinations that Williams did not present sufficient evidence to create a question for the jury on his Sec. 1981 claim and that the defendant was entitled to judgment on the Title VII claim.

Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Williams v. Harris-Teeter Supermarkets, Inc., C/A No. 86-293 (W.D.N.C. Dec. 1, 1987). We deny Williams the preparation of a transcript at Government expense because we do not find that this appeal presents a substantial question. See 28 U.S.C. § 753(f). We dispense with oral argument since the record and the briefs filed with this Court indicate that oral argument would not significantly aid the decisional process.

AFFIRMED.
