Roy David Pilkenton, appellant pro se.

Mark Ralph Davis, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Carlyle Randolph Wimbish, III, Sands, Anderson, Marks & Miller, Richmond, Va., for appellees.

W.D. Va.


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



Roy David Pilkenton appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. 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. Pilkenton v. Smith, No. CA-91-123-R (W.D. Va. Sept. 17, 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.
