Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Walter E. Black, Jr., District Judge. (C/A No. 89-2751)

William Lewis Smith, appellant pro se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Stephanie Judith Lane-Weber, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Md., for appellees.

D. Md.


Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


William Lewis Smith 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.*  Smith v. Galley, C/A No. 89-2751 (D. Md. Apr. 9, 1990). The motion for injunctive relief is denied. 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.



The action was also filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1985. Smith's claims do not state a cause of action under that statute
