U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 902 F.2d 1566 (4th Cir. 1990)

Submitted Jan. 31, 1990. Decided April 26, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Robert R. Merhige, Jr., Senior District Judge. (C/A No. 87-621-R)

Nathaniel Nelson, appellant pro se.

Robert William Jaspen, Office of the United States Attorney, for appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Nathaniel Nelson filed this civil action, claiming that certain constitutional violations and a violation of Title VII arose during his employment at a federal prison. The district court granted the defendants' motion to dismiss the constitutional claims after the close of the plaintiff's evidence at trial. The court entered judgment for the defendants on the Title VII claim at the close of all the evidence. Nelson appealed.

Here Nelson complains that the district court erred. Having reviewed the record and the decision below, we find his arguments meritless. Accordingly, we affirm the decision of the district court. 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.
