Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 918 F.2d 174 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Oct. 29, 1990. Decided Nov. 19, 1990

On Petition for Review of an Order of the Benefits Review Board. (BRB No. 88-1122-BLA)

Eva Shepard, appellate pro se.

Helen Hart Cox, Barbara J. Johnson, United States Department of Labor, Washington, D.C., for respondent.



Before WIDENER, PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


Eva Shepard seeks review of the Benefits Review Board's decision and order affirming the administrative law judge's denial of black lung benefits pursuant to 30 U.S.C. §§ 901 et seq. Our review of the record and the Board's decision and order discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Board. Shepard v. DOWCP, BRB No. 88-1122-BLA (Ben.Rev.Bd. June 21, 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.
