Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 934 F.2d 318 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted April 30, 1991. Decided June 4, 1991

Appeals from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. James C. Fox, Chief District Judge; W. Earl Britt, District Judge. (CA-90-384-HC, CA-91-62-BRT)

Melvin Anderson, appellant pro se.

G. Norman Acker, Office of the United States Attorney, Raleigh, N.C., for appellees.



Before MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judge, and BUTZNER and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judges.


In these consolidated cases, Melvin Anderson appeals the district court's dismissal of his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 petition (No. 91-6500) and his Bivens1  action (No. 91-7052). Our review of the records, the district court's orders, and the report and recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that these appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Anderson v. Hadden, CA-90-384-HC (E.D.N.C. Dec. 6, 1990); Anderson v. Wilson, CA-91-62-BRT (E.D.N.C. Feb. 14, 1991). We deny Anderson's motion to vacate judgment and his motion to stay appeal pending disposition of his motion to vacate judgment in No. 91-6500. 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.
