Estie Acord, Petitioner, v. Director, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs, Unitedstates Department of Labor, Respondent, 948 F.2d 1280 (4th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
On Petition for Review of an Order of the Benefits Review Board. (90-1386-BLA)
Estie Acord, petitioner pro se.
Michelle Seyman Gerdano, Barbara J. Johnson, United States Department of Labor, Washington, D.C., for respondent.
Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, SPROUSE, Circuit Judge, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.
Estie Acord seeks review of the Benefits Review Board's decision and order affirming the administrative law judge's denial of black lung benefits pursuant to 30 U.S.C. §§ 901-945 (1991). Our review of the record and the Board's decision and order discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Board. Acord v. Director, Off. of Workers' Comp. Prog., No. 901386-BLA (Ben.Rev.Bd. Apr. 30, 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.
