Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 902 F.2d 28 (4th Cir. 1990)

Submitted April 2, 1990. Decided April 13, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Edward S. Northrop, Senior District Judge. (C/A No. 90-211-N)

Robert Clifton Johnson, Jr., appellant pro se.

D. Md.


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


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.*  Johnson v. Duvall, C/A No. 90-211-N (D. Md. Feb. 5, 1990). 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 Johnson is attempting to claim that the denial of his social security benefits resulted from a due process violation, we note that such a contention cannot give rise to a claim for monetary damages against a federal official. Schweiker v. Chilicky, 487 U.S. 412 (1988)
