Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. Jackson L. Kiser, Chief District Judge. (CA-93-110)

James M. Bivens, Appellant Pro Se. Victor O. Cardwell, WOODS, ROGERS & HAZLEGROVE, Roanoke, Virginia, for Appellees.

W.D. Va.


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


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny the motion to appoint counsel and affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Bivens v. Roanoke County Salem Jail, No. CA-93-110 (W.D. Va. Feb. 14, 1994). 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.
