US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 56 F.3d 61 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted April 20, 1995Decided May 25, 1995

David Felton, Appellant Pro Se. Jane Ray Garvey, OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NORTH CAROLINA, Raleigh, NC, for appellees.

Before WIDENER, WILKINSON, and WILKINS Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's orders denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate judge's recommendation, and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Felton v. Bounds, No. CA-92-770-CRT-BO (E.D.N.C. Nov. 16, 1994 and Jan. 13, 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.



Though the district court did not state in its January 1995 order that it had conducted de novo review of those portions of the magistrate judge's report to which Appellant objected, see 28 U.S.C.A. Sec. 636(b) (1) (B) (West 1993), such review was not required since Appellant's objections were general and conclusory and did not direct the court to any specific error. See Orpiano v. Johnson, 687 F.2d 44, 47 (4th Cir. 1982)
