Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 976 F.2d 726 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted: August 31, 1992Decided: Sept. 17, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, at Charlotte. Robert D. Potter, District Judge. (CA-91-204-C-P)

Paul Higgins, Appellant Pro Se.

Frank Bayard Aycock, III, Charlotte, North Carolina, for Appellees.



Before SPROUSE and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Paul Higgins appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988). 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.*  Higgins v. Ellis, No. CA-91-204-C-P (W.D.N.C. Apr. 9, 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.



We note that our disposition of this appeal renders moot Higgins's request for transcripts
