OPINION

PER CURIAM:


Dr. Pradip K. Ghosh appeals from the order of the district court dismissing his case, filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988), under the doctrine of Burford v. Sun Oil Co., 319 U.S. 315 (1943). Dr. Ghosh has moved to expedite the appeal. 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. Ghosh v. Mayor, No. CA-91-491-S (D. Md. July 29, 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.

AFFIRMED.
