Submitted March 2, 1992. Decided March 17, 1992
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. David G. Lowe, Magistrate Judge. (CA-91-467)
Michael Steven Fitz, appellant pro se.
Mark Ralph Davis, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, Va., for appellees.
Before SPROUSE and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.
Michael Steven Fitz appeals from the magistrate judge's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988).* Our review of the record and the magistrate judge's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the magistrate judge. Fitz v. Zollicoffer, No. CA-91-467 (E.D. Va. Jan. 7, 1992). 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.
All parties consented to the magistrate judge's jurisdiction with appellate review by this Court, rather than the district court, pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. § 636(c) (3) (West Supp.1991)
