US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 106 F.3d 390 (4th Cir. 1997) Submitted Jan. 23, 1997. Decided Jan. 29, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, at Charleston. Charles H. Haden II, Chief District Judge. (CA-95-949-2)

Before RUSSELL, WILKINS, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.

William E. Mattingly, Appellant Pro Se.

Stephen Michael Horn, Assistant United States Attorney, Charleston, West Virginia, for Appellee.


Appellant appeals the district court's order denying relief in his action pursuant to 18 U.S.C.A. §§ 1961-1968 (West 1984 & Supp.1996), the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate judge's recommendation and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Mattingly v. Betts, No. CA-95-949-2 (S.D.W. Va. June 26, 1996). 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.
