Edward A. Ganey, Jr., Plaintiff Appellant, v. Richard N. League; Terrance W. Boyle, Defendants Appellees, 16 F.3d 409 (4th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 409 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted Dec. 16, 1993. Decided Jan. 14, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Malcolm J. Howard, District Judge.

Edward A. Ganey, Jr., appellant Pro Se.



Before HALL and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and SPROUSE, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his hybrid 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988)/Bivens1  complaint. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit.2  Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Ganey v. League, No. CA-93-309 (E.D.N.C. Sept. 28, 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.



Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971)


Even if Ganey's complaint is construed as requesting injunctive relief, he has not stated a federal constitutional violation. Thus, summary dismissal was appropriate under any view of Ganey's complaint
