Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1176 (4th Cir. 1994) Submitted Oct. 18, 1994. Decided Nov. 15, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk. John A. MacKenzie, Senior District Judge. (CA-94-462)

Early L. Harris, Appellant Pro Se.

E.D. Va.


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


Appellant appeals from the district court's orders dismissing his Bivens*  action, properly construed by the court as a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (1988), and denying his Fed. R. Civ. P. 59(e) motion for reconsideration. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses no abuse of discretion and that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Harris v. Getty, No. 94-462 (E.D. Va. May 23, 1994, July 27, 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.
