Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 4 F.3d 985 (4th Cir. 1993) Submitted: August 16, 1993. Decided: September 1, 1993

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. Glen E. Conrad, Magistrate Judge. (CA-93-141-R)

Wilford Andrew Matherly, Jr., Appellant Pro Se.

William Carrington Thompson, Chatham, Virginia, for Appellees.

W.D. Va.


Before HALL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and SPROUSE, Senior Circuit Judge.



Wilford Andrew Matherly, Jr., appeals from the magistrate judge's judgment, entered after a bench trial, denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988).*  Our review of the record and the magistrate judge's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the magistrate judge. Matherly v. Tucker, No. CA-93-141-R (W.D. Va. Apr. 30, 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.



The parties consented to proceed before the magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 636(c) (West Supp. 1993)
