Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 57 F.3d 1067 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted: April 25, 1995. Decided: June 12, 1995

Ronnie L. Simmons, Sr., Steven Whisenant, Appellants Pro Se. Susan Campbell Alexander, Assistant Attorney General, Mark Ralph Davis, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, VA, for Appellees.

Before WILKINS and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellants in these two cases*  appeal from the district courts' orders denying their motions for summary judgment on the basis of qualified immunity and denying their motion for reconsideration in appeal No. 94-7283. Our review of the records and the district courts' opinions discloses no abuse of discretion and that these appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district courts. Simmons v. Huffman, No. CA-93-482-R; Whisenant v. Smith, No. CA-93-802-R (W.D. Va. Sept. 30, 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.



We have granted the Appellants' motions to consolidate these appeals
