US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 948 F.2d 1281 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted Oct. 28, 1991. Decided Nov. 19, 1991. As Amended Dec. 9, 1991

On Petition for Review of an Order of the Benefits Review Board. (89-2612-BLA)

Mose Horn, petitioner pro se.

Timothy Ward Gresham, Penn, Stuart, Eskridge & Jones, Abingdon, Va.; Michael John Denney, Steven D. Breeskin, Christian P. Barber, United States Department of Labor, Washington, D.C., for respondents.



Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, SPROUSE, Circuit Judge, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.



Mose Horn 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.A. §§ 901-945 (West 1986 & Supp.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. Horn v. Hobbs Bros. Coal Co., No. 89-2612-BLA (Ben.Rev.Bd. June 27, 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.
