Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 21 F.3d 423 (4th Cir. 1994) Submitted: December 3, 1993. Decided: April 12, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. William M. Nickerson, District Judge. (CA-91-2327-WN)

Cora U. Ransome, Appellant Pro Se.

Benjamin Winfield Hahn, Gail Diane Allen, Littler, Mendelson, Fastiff & Tichy, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

Before WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to Appellees in this employment discrimination action under Title VII, 42 U.S.C.A. Secs. 2000e through 2000e-17 (West 1981 & Supp.1993). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court.*  Ransome v. Bowling, CA-91-2327-WN (D. Md. May 4, 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.



Because Appellant's claims were appropriately dismissed on summary judgment for her failure to establish a prima facie case, we need not consider whether she is entitled to retroactive application of the expanded damage and jury trial provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, Pub. L. No. 102-166, Sec. 114, 105 Stat. 1071 (1991)
