OPINION

PER CURIAM:


Lorenzo Terrell brought an action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. His claim against IRS employees, including supervisors, centered on their allegedly improper effectuation of a search and arrest. Defendants have moved to dismiss or for summary judgment, claiming that qualified immunity applies.

Having reviewed the opinion of the district judge denying the relief requested by the defendants, we, on the reasoning of the district judge, affirm. Terrell v. Petrie, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, CA-90-629.

AFFIRMED.
