Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 48 F.3d 1216 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted Jan. 19, 1995. Decided Feb. 16, 1995

Elic L. Gilliam, appellant pro se.

Before WILKINS and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and SPROUSE, 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 affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Gilliam v. Ganes Dickenson Auctioneers, Nos. CA-94-699-R; CA-94-700-R; CA-94-701-R; CA-94-702-R; CA-94-703-R; CA-94-704-R; CA-94-705-R; CA-94-706-R; CA-94-707-R; CA-94-708-R; CA-94-709-R (W.D. Va. Sept. 2, 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.



The claims against the federal officials named in Gilliam's Complaint were properly construed by the district court as actions under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971)
