Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Columbia. Karen L. Henderson, District Judge. (CA-88-2348-3-16)

Before DONALD RUSSELL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Allard A. Allston appeals from the district court's orders which granted default judgment against him, adopted a magistrate judge's recommendation as to the amount of damages, and denied his motion for a new trial. Our review of the record, the district court's opinions, and the magistrate judge's report discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Jostens, Inc. v. Allston, CA-88-2348-3-16 (D.S.C. Apr. 11 and May 4, 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.
