Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 872 F.2d 417 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted Feb. 15, 1989. Decided March 10, 1989

Jerome Howard Hinton, appellant pro se.

Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and DONALD RUSSELL and K.K. HALL, Circuit Judges.


Jerome Howard Hinton appeals the district court's order denying relief from the judgment entered in Hinton's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action.*  Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. We conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to reopen Hinton's action. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.



Hinton's notice of appeal is timely only as to the denial of his motion to reopen the case under Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b), and not as to the underlying judgment
