US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 39 F.3d 1177 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted Sept. 26, 1994. Decided Oct. 25, 1994


Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk. Robert E. Payne, District Judge. (CA-92-1113-2)

Theodore Eugene Long, appellant pro se.

Anita Kay Henry, Office of the United States Attorney, Norfolk, VA, for appellee.

E.D. Va.

AFFIRMED.

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

PER CURIAM:


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint, which the court properly construed as a Bivens action.1  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.2  Long v. Gable, No. CA-92-1113-2 (E.D. Va. Apr. 4, 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.

AFFIRMED

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

We deny Appellant's motion for appointment of counsel
