N.D.W. Va.


Before K.K. HALL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and JOSEPH H. YOUNG, Senior United States District Judge for the District of Maryland, sitting by designation.



Linwood Builders, Inc., appeals the judgment of the district court affirming a judgment of the bankruptcy court in favor of the trustee, the plaintiff in this adversary proceeding arising out of the bankruptcy of the Snowshoe Company. Our review of the record and consideration of the briefs of the parties discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court on the reasoning of both the bankruptcy court and the district court. 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.
