Before WIDENER, MURNAGHAN, and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.



Roger Lee Simmons appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to the Defendants in this action raising various state and federal claims. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Simmons v. General Electric, No. CA-91-1356-6-20K (D.S.C. Apr. 2, 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.
