US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 66 F.3d 316 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted: Aug. 24, 1995. Decided: Sept. 19, 1995

Before WIDENER, HALL, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant petitions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (5) (1988) for leave to appeal a decision of the district court affirming the magistrate judge's dismissal of Appellant's 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint. See Fed. R. App. P. 51. Because Appellant has failed to present a substantial question of law for review, we deny the petition for leave to appeal. See Adams v. Heckler, 794 F.2d 303, 309 (7th Cir. 1986) (holding that petitions for leave to appeal under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (5) should only be granted in cases involving substantial and important questions of law); Wolff v. Wolff, 768 F.2d 642, 647 (5th Cir. 1985) (same). 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.
