Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 875 F.2d 315 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted Dec. 30, 1988. Decided May 2, 1989

John Langford, appellant pro se.

Carolyn Smith Motes, Motes, Fite & O'Brien, Peter Donald Andreoli, Jr., County Attorney's Office, for appellees.

Before PHILLIPS, WILKINSON, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


John Langford appeals from the order of the district court granting defendants' motion for a directed verdict at the conclusion of Langford's case-in-chief at trial on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint. Our review of the record discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning stated by the district court. Langford v. Huggins, C/A No. 88-8-A (E.D. Va., July 6, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
