US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 979 F.2d 848 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted: October 26, 1992Decided: November 19, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh.

James W. Matthews, Appellant Pro Se.

Sylvia Hargett Thibaut, Assistant Attorney General, Raleigh, North Carolina, for Appellees.



Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and RUSSELL and WIDENER, Circuit Judges.


James W. Matthews 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. Matthews v. Dep't of Corrections, No. CA-91-771 (E.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.
