Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


Thomas Howard Whidden appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to the defendants in his Fair Housing Act action. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. While we grant Whidden's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Whidden v. Simmons, CA-90-175 (E.D. Va. July 18, 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.
