William Rundahl Coleman, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, for Appellees.

W.D. Va.

AFFIRMED

Before WIDENER and HALL, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:


OPINION

Michael S. Edwards appeals from the district court's orders denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinions discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court.*  Edwards v. Hershey, No. CA-90-691-R (W.D. Va. Jan. 7 & Apr. 16, 1992). 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.

AFFIRMED

 *

We deny Edwards' motion for preparation of a transcript at government expense because his appeal does not present a substantial question. 28 U.S.C. § 753(f) (1988)
