Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


Billy Ray Jackson 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Jackson v. Evatt, C/A No. 88-1746-3-16-J (D.S.C. July 11, 1989). We also deny Jackson's motion for appointment of counsel. 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.



To the extent that Jackson seeks relief from confinement, his claim was properly dismissed for failure to exhaust state remedies. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(b)
