Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 891 F.2d 287 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted: Sept. 12, 1989. Decided: Nov. 9, 1989

Thomas Tyrone Johnson, appellant pro se.

Samuel Bernard Goodwyn (McGuire, Woods, Battle & Boothe), for appellees.

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


Thomas Tyrone Johnson 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. Johnson v. Avant, CA-88-830-N (E.D. Va. July 11, 1989). 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.
