Donald Sylvester Gross, Appellant Pro Se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Stephanie Judith Lane-Weber, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

Before HALL, WILKINS, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Donald Sylvester Gross appeals an order of the district court granting summary judgment in favor of some defendants and dismissing the complaint with regard to the remaining defendants in Gross' 42 U.S.C. § 1983 suit alleging deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs. We have considered the record and informal briefs of the parties, and we affirm the judgment for the reasons stated by the district court in its memorandum opinion. Gross v. Lanham, No. 95-684-S (D. Md. Oct. 2, 1995). 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.
