E.D. Va.


Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and WILKINSON and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.


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 affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Lawson v. Virginia, No. CA-93-408 (E.D. Va. June 22, 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.
