Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. Jackson L. Kiser, District Judge. (CA-90-635-R)

Frizell Stephens, appellant pro se.

Robert Harkness Herring, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Va., for appellees.

W.D. Va.


Before WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Frizell Stephens appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and denying his motion for reconsideration. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Stephens v. Blankenship, CA-90-635R (W.D. Va. Mar. 28 and Apr. 25, 1991). 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.
