OPINION

PER CURIAM:


Ronnie L. Simmons, Sr., appeals from a district court order that granted summary judgment to the Defendants and denied his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition (No. 93-6980) and granted summary judgment to the Defendants in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) action (No. 93-6985). In No. 93-6980, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Simmons v. Murray, No. CA-93-215-2 (E.D. Va., Aug. 24, 1993). In No. 93-6985, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Simmons v. Jackson, No. CA-92-67-2 (E.D. Va., Aug. 24, 1993). 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.

DISMISSED IN PART, AFFIRMED IN PART.
