Lewis A. Woodliff, appellant pro se.

Timothy James Paulus, Assistant Attorney General; Paul T. Cuzmanes, Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz, Edelman & Dicker, for appellees.

D. Md.


Before PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Lewis A. Woodliff 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. Woodliff v. Lyles, C/A No. 89-468-S (D. Md. Aug. 14, 1989). We deny Woodliff's motion for appointment of counsel and 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.
