Argued Dec. 19, 1996. Decided Jan. 6, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. Samuel G. Wilson, District Judge. (CA-96-749-R)

Richard S. Fett, Appellant Pro Se.

W.D. Va.


Before ERVIN and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant, a Virginia inmate, appeals the district court's order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1994) complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) (1) & (2) (1994), amended by Prison Litigation Reform Act, Pub. L. No. 104-134, 110 Stat. 1321 (1996). We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find that this appeal is frivolous. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Fett v. Morris, No. CAn-96-749-R (W.D. Va. Sept. 12, 1996). We deny Appellant's motion requesting free copying of appeal papers. 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.
