Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. Claude M. Hilton, District Judge. (CA-90-1221-AM)

Tony Griffin Cottrell, Appellant Pro Se.

Paula Pugh Newett, Office of the United States Attorney, Alexandria, Virginia, for Appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER, HAMILTON, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Tony Griffin Cottrell appeals from the district court's order dismissing his Bivens*  action. 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. Cottrell v. Quinlan, No. CA-90-1221-AM (E.D. Va. Oct. 5, 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.
