Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. James C. Cacheris, Chief District Judge. (CA-92-1300-A)

Michael C. Benko, Appellant Pro Se.

Jack L. Gould, Fairfax, Virginia; Claude T. Compton, Manassas, Virginia; William Andrew Fogarty, Walsh, Colucci, Stackhouse, Emrich & Lubeley, P.C., Arlington, Virginia, for Appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before WILKINS and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.



Michael C. Benko appeals from the district court's order dismissing his complaint for lack of diversity jurisdiction because Benko and one or more of the Defendants are both residents of Virginia. 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. Benko v. Benko, No. CA-92-1300-A (E.D. Va. Sept. 24, 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.
