E.D. Va.


Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


In his complaint, Michael Leonard alleged that his due process rights were violated in connection with a suspension from Lake Braddock Secondary School for insubordination toward and verbal abuse of a teacher. Following a hearing on defendants' motion for summary judgment, the district court entered judgment for defendants. Having reviewed the entire record de novo, see Higgins v. E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., 863 F.2d 1162, 1166-67 (4th Cir. 1988), we are convinced that there is no genuine dispute as to any material fact and that defendants were entitled to judgment as a matter of law. As our review of the record and other materials before us indicates that it would not significantly aid the decisional process, we dispense with oral argument. The judgment is affirmed.
