D. Md.


Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


Donald Patrick Meck appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment in his civil suit. After reviewing the record, we conclude that the district court correctly found that Meck waived his right to the proceeds from his wife's Servicemen's Group Life Insurance policy when he voluntarily signed a separation agreement relinquishing his right to the insurance proceeds. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Drummond v. Meck, CA-89-2003-PN (D. Md. July 25, 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.
