Submitted Dec. 28, 1989. Decided April 18, 1990. Rehearing Denied May 17, 1990


Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Edward S. Northrop, Senior District Judge. (C/A No. 89-2819-N)

Robert Clifton Johnson, Jr., appellant pro se.

D. Md.

AFFIRMED.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, WIDENER and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


Robert Clifton Johnson, Jr., 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 and on the additional ground that the defendant did not act under color of state law. Johnson v. Kaplan, C/A No. 89-2819-N (D. Md. Oct. 20, 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.

AFFIRMED
