Anthony J. Rankine appeals from the district court's order dismissing this action on the basis of jurisdictional defects and sovereign immunity. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Rankine v. Milhollan, CA-90-22-ST-C-V (W.D.N.C. Nov. 1, 1990 and Jan. 22, 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. The motions to expedite appeal, to appoint counsel, and to expedite oral argument are denied.
