US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 106 F.3d 395 (4th Cir. 1997) Submitted Jan. 9, 1997. Decided Jan. 23, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Greenville. Joseph F. Anderson, Jr., District Judge. (CA-96-1699-17AK, CA-96-1700-17AK)

Randy Williford, Appellant Pro Se.

Before HALL and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant, a South Carolina inmate, appeals the district court's order denying relief on his two 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1994) complaints under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d) (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 order accepting the magistrate judge's recommendation and find that this appeal is frivolous. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Williford v. Catoe, Nos. CA-96-1699-17AK; CA-96-1700-17AK (D.S.C. July 12, 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.
