US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 914 F.2d 248 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Aug. 27, 1990. Decided Sept. 20, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, at Charlotte. James B. McMillan, Senior District Judge. (C/A No. 87-0541-M)

Frank Goodman, Jr., appellant pro se.

Frank Bayard Aycock, III, Charlotte, N.C., for appellees.



Before SPROUSE and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Frank Goodman, Jr. appeals the directed verdicts for the city and the police department and the jury verdict for Harold Jackson entered in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit. Our review of the record, including audio tapes of the trial, reveal that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm. Goodman v. Jackson, CA-87-0541-M (W.D.N.C. Sept. 6, 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.
