US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 955 F.2d 42 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted Feb. 3, 1992. Decided Feb. 18, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. M.J. Garbis, District Judge. (CA-91-1857)

Warren Reginald Stevenson, appellant pro se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Timothy James Paulus, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Md., for appellees.

D. Md.


Before WIDENER, HAMILTON and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges.



Warren R. Stevenson appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to Defendants on a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) retaliation claim, dismissing without prejudice Plaintiff's wrongful imprisonment claim so that he may exhaust state remedies, and denying appointment of counsel. 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. Stevenson v. Rogers, No. CA-91-1857 (D. Md. Nov. 14, 1991). Stevenson's motion to disqualify the district judge is denied. 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.
