W.D. Va.


Before POWELL, Associate Justice (Retired), United States Supreme Court, sitting by designation, and HAMILTON and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.



Joe Blevins appeals the decision of the district court, holding that a prior state court judgment against Blevins was not dischargeable under 11 U.S.C. § 523(a) (6) of the Bankruptcy Code. The prior state court judgment determined that Blevins acted willfully and maliciously in alienating the affections of Harold Coe's wife. Our review of the briefs and consideration of the arguments of the parties have revealed that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court for the reasons stated in that court's order. Joe A. Blevins v. Harold Coe, CA No. 91-0071-A (W.D. Va. February 12, 1992).
