Freddie Lee Felder, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Bert M. Montague, Clerk, Defendant-appellee, 54 F.3d 773 (4th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 54 F.3d 773 (4th Cir. 1995)

Submitted April 20, 1995. Decided May 22, 1995

Freddie Lee Felder, appellant pro se. Debra Jean Prillaman, Assistant United States Attorney, Richmond, VA, for appellee.

Before WIDENER, WILKINSON, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Freddie Lee Felder appeals from the district court's order affirming the magistrate judge's order granting summary judgment to the defendant in Felder's action filed pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971).*  Our review of the record and the opinions of both the district court and the magistrate judge reveal that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we grant Felder permission to appeal and we affirm on the reasoning expressed in those opinions. Felder v. Montague, No. CA-94-49-R (E.D. Va. July 28, 1994; Jan. 23, 1995). 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 the jurisdiction of a magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 636(c) (4) (West 1993)
